Progressive group canvassing for Bill Nelson, other Democrats on Saturday

Saturday marks 100 days until voters head to the polls and a progressive advocacy group plans to spend the day knocking on thousands of doors throughout the Sunshine State.

For Our Future Florida said it aims to knock on 20,000 doors during its “Statewide Canvass Day of Action,” which consists of 72 separate events in all corners of the state, from smaller cities such as Apopka and Gainesville to major metros including Miami and St. Petersburg.

The group added that it aims to “turn the groundswell of enthusiasm from newly engaged voters into action at the polls in 2018.” There’s some math behind that mission — according recent reports, young voter registrations have soared in the months since the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

While Democrats running for regional seats in the state Legislature and U.S. House will get plenty of attention during the canvassing drive, the group said the game plan is for all volunteers to make the case for re-electing U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson to a fourth term and sending a Democrat to the Governor’s Mansion for the first time this century. FOF-FL has not officially endorsed one of the five Democratic candidates for Governor.
