Blue Horizons Gala is the first planned fund-raising event for the newly reorganized Levy County Democratic Party. Money generated from the event will be used to support communications with Democrats in Levy County, to register voters, to assist Democrats running for office representing Levy County, to promote the Democratic Party, to fund Get Out The Vote drives (GOTV) in Levy County and to encourage Democratic voter participation in all upcoming elections.
The 2020 election is of critical importance in determining the future of our nation and Florida is a key battleground state. Statewide elections in Florida, including presidential elections, are often won by as little as 1% of the vote or less. Hillary Clinton lost Florida in 2016 by 1.2% of the votes cast. Vice President Al Gore lost Florida’s electoral votes and the presidential election by just 537 votes.
Even rural counties like Levy County will play a significant role in defeating Donald Trump and electing a Democratic president in 2020. We are working to make the Levy County Democratic Party a determining force in turning Florida blue.
