Last night, Democrat Jeff Porter was elected Mayor of Homestead by a margin of 55 to 45 percent — despite being outspent four to one by Republican Mark Bell.
The Miami-Dade Democratic Party is proud to have led the ground effort in Homestead — knocking on nearly 5,000 doors, increasing Democratic turnout, and educating voters about Jeff's record as a public servant with phone and mail communication.
This decisive victory proved that Mark and Lynda Bell, and their Tea Party orientation & cozy relationship with special interests, are NOT what Homestead voters are looking for.
Congratulations Jeff on winning a hard-fought race. And thank you to everyone who knocked doors, made calls, or contributed to the Miami-Dade Democratic Party. Your support was an investment in this victory, and many more like it — because THIS is how we build a blue Florida: from the bottom up.
