Fla GOP Chair organizing help for Nan Rich



A MESSAGE FROM RPOF CHAIRMAN LENNY CURRY TO DEMOCRATS: It's become very clear that your party chair, Allison Tant, will not give the five minutes Senator Nan Rich deserves at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner tomorrow. That's why you should ask U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro (all speaking at the dinner) to donate 1 minute and 40 seconds from each of their allotted speaking times to one of Florida's leading liberal voices. One minute and 40 seconds from each of those three speakers will give Senator Rich the five minutes she has requested. It is now on these three Democrats to do the right thing and make a small cut to each of their remarks, so that activists can hear from Nan, and Tant can keep the dinner short.
