ICYMI: Florida Democratic Party Chairman Manny Diaz discusses Upcoming Election Season, Voter Registration & More During Interview on Facing South Florida with Jim DeFede

On October 10, 2021, Florida Democratic Party Chairman Manny Diaz sat down with Jim DeFede for an interview on Facing South Florida to discuss the political climate in the state and expectations for the upcoming election season, including voter registration. 
Key Quotes from Chairman Manny Diaz:
    • “We’re building up a statewide organization that is going to be working year-round, that is working statewide and it’s going to be partisan…We’re not going to build up field operations just around elections, we’re not going to focus on getting the blue counties to get us over the top, we’re not going to do what was done over the last 10-20 years, we’re going to change all of that. I’m confident that we’re going to build an army.” 
    • “I remember DeSantis doing victory laps after the session talking about how many policy successes they had. He wouldn’t know policy if it hit him in the forehead Jim. This is pandering, not policy. It is pandering to that FOX audience that he believes is necessary for him to get elected.” 
    • “His 6-signature priorities: the anti-protest bill, the $3,000 contribution limit on issue committees, the anti tech law, the cruise ships, the school mask mandate, even the sanctuary cities, even though we don’t have one because he outlawed them, have all been thrown out by courts. By the way, pending is the voter suppression law, it is still in the courts.” 
    • “They cut affordable housing, they cut money from schools. They talk about life all the time, like they own life, let’s talk about gun violence. There have been over 300 mass shootings this year. We’re setting homicide records never before seen in America.”
