Ana Rivas Logan Leaves GOP, Joins Democratic Party
Yesterday, former Republican State House representative and former schoolboard member Ana Rivas Logan left the GOP and officially registered as a Democrat.
"The Republican Party has lost it way," said Rivas Logan at a press conference outside the Miami-Dade elections office. "I'm so proud to be joining a party that welcomes all people and doesn't alienate women, minorities, and immigrants or attack people on the basis of sexual orientation."
"As chair of the party, not a day goes by when someone doesn't reach out to me to say that they are changing parties," said Miami-Dade Democratic Party Chair Annette Taddeo-Goldstein. "Especially within the Hispanic community, this is a trend we are seeing more and more often."
With over 600K registered Democrats in Miami-Dade, we represent the largest number of Democrats of any county in the state of Florida. We want to work with all Democrats to organize and effect change around the issues that will improve lives of those in our community. We invite you to sign up for email updates, and join us at county and local club meetings to learn how to get more involved.
