The Florida Democratic Party announced speakers for the annual Leadership Blue Gala — the list includes the head of the Democratic Party, elected officials from across the country, and the spouses of presidential hopefuls.
Party and elected officials include Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic National Committee, Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, and Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus Representative Hakeem Jeffries of New York.
The spouses for presidential hopefuls already include Chasten Buttigieg, the husband of Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Douglas Emhoff, the husband of Senator Kamala Harris.
Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, expressed excitement about the diverse group of speakers for the Leadership Blue Gala:
“June is going to be an exciting month for Florida Democrats! The top Democratic Presidential candidates will make their way to Miami for the first Democratic debate later this month, and today we are thrilled to announce an all-star line-up for our Leadership Blue gala, including Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Chair Tom Perez, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, and the spouses of presidential hopefuls, including Douglas Emhoff and Chasten Buttigieg. This year’s Gala will be an opportunity to hear from diverse voices and Democratic leaders from across the United States. Trump can’t win the White House without Florida, and Democrats are investing across the board to do the hard work it will take to win.”
This year’s event will be held at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club in Orlando, FL from Friday, June 7th to Sunday, June 9th.
