Join us for an Election 2020 conversation with Florida’s top Republican, top Democrat

Republican Party of Florida chairman Joe Gruters and Florida Democratic Party chairwoman Terrie Rizzo will join Times Political Editor Steve Contorno for a Nov. 6 event.

We’re just about one year out from Election Day 2020, so what better time to get together and talk politics?

The Tampa Bay Times is hosting a reader event on Nov. 6 at the Chihuly Collection in St. Petersburg. Political Editor Steve Contorno will be joined by state Sen. Joe Gruters, the head of the Republican Party of Florida, and Terrie Rizzo, the head of the Florida Democratic Party, for a conversation about all things 2020. This is the rare chance to hear two people leading the state parties talk about the election ahead of us.

Florida is a key state in presidential contests and the second home of President Donald Trump. Which way will it fall next November? Our panel will break down all the factors at play.

The event, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 720 Central Ave., is free and open to the public. You just need to RSVP. We hope to see you there!
