Social media is no substitute for canvassing, phone banking, and other forms of volunteering, but we still spend a lot of time on it. For all of the young Democrats tweeting out there, here are some tips for getting the word out about candidates we have endorsed. Give us a follow on @FLYoungDems and take a minute every day to share something with your followers about a candidate you believe in!
@CharlieCrist for Governor of Florida
This is our fight for a @ScottFreeFLA and to elect Florida’s first Democratic governor in 16 years. The polls are showing it is going to be a long, tough battle, but this race is imperative to stop the damage Rick Scott is doing to Florida. We all need to be on #TeamCharlie.
@Sheldon_FL for Attorney General
Attorney General candidate George Sheldon has a good chance to defeat incumbent Pam Bondi, who believes gay marriage would impose significant public harm. Help spread the word about a candidate who will fight for #equality.
@Shayan4Congress for U.S. Congress, FL District 10
Hashtags: #TeamShayan #ShayanForCongress #FL10
Shayan Modarres is running against Daniel Webster in District 10. We chose to endorse him because we believe he provides hope for immigration reform, defense for the Affordable Care Act, and will advocate strongly for equality in Central Florida. #TeamShayan needs your help to bring a new progressive voice to Orlando!
@WesNeuman for U.S. Congress, FL District 7
Hashtags: #YestoWes #FlipaDistrict #Yeson2 #FL07
We are trying to flip 22 year incumbent John Mica’s district with progressive, young Democrat Wes Neuman. It’s important to motivate our base and young Democrats to say #YestoWes and to help convince @billmaher to feature his district on his show for #FlipaDistrict. If you say #Yesto2 supporting medical marijuana, you should say #YestoWes in #FL07 to support the amendment with smart, progressive leadership.
