Open letter to DNC Chair Tom Perez: Miami-Dade should host the First Presidential Primary Debate

The following letter has been shared with DNC Chair Tom Perez and we encourage Democrats in Miami-Dade interested in bringing the candidates to South Florida to share this with their friends.

Dear Chairman Perez:

I write to request that the Democratic National Committee select Miami-Dade County to host the first Democratic primary debate for the 2020 presidential election. Florida is the largest swing state in the nation and Miami-Dade is home to more than 600,000 Democrats and 450,000 voters without party affiliation. Both of those totals lead the state.
