Florida Democrats announce 2011 convention



The Florida Democratic Party this morning announced its 2011 state convention, to be held Oct. 28-30 in Orlando. The theme: "A Legacy of Leadership: A Promise for Tomorrow."


From the release: "Our state is at a crossroads. Our Tea Party Governor and Republican-led Legislature are pressing forward with a radical, job-killing agenda aimed squarely at our state’s hard-working firefighters, police officers, teachers and public employees. Faced with this extreme agenda, Democrats are more determined than ever to fight back and stop this right-wing agenda from sweeping Florida."

The party set up a convention website for anyone seeking information on the event.
