DEMOCRATS COMING OUT IN DROVES
This was the scene at the January Democratic Breakfast … the restaurant was filled !
Recent meetings have seen standing room only and even overflow crowds!
At the January meeting, latecomers watched and heard Rep. Patrick Murphy’s speech from an auxiliary room. This is an excellent sign for Democratic success in the 2016 election!
In addition to the attendance at regular meetings, participation is strong in a wide variety of events. There is something for everyone. See the events listed to the right. We welcome new ideas … anything to bring Democrats together and to help Democrats get elected!
And, don’t forget to look at several new posts listed underneath this photograph.
DID YOU KNOW?
- The Villages is promoted as a Republican stronghold. Yet 30% of the registered voters in The Villages are Democrats. Put a different way, there are upwards of 18,000!!! registered Democrats residing in the Villages. With another 16% registered Independents that means there are almost 50% potential Democratic voters in 2016.
- Our Democratic Club has almost 1,300 members of these groups and is one of the largest and most active clubs in the state of Florida. Let’s continue growing our membership. Try to bring a neighbor or resident friend to the meeting and help them see that they are NOT ALONE.
