Miami-Dade Democrats Congratulate Jean-Pierre Bado on Winning the Democratic Nomination to Florida House District 114

MIAMI-DADE, FL: Jean-Pierre Bado has become the Democratic nominee for House District 114. The Miami-Dade Democratic Party will work to defend this seat in November.

Miami-Dade Democratic Party Chair, Steve Simeonidis, issued the following statement, congratulating J.P. Bado on his victory.

“I congratulate J.P. on becoming the Democratic nominee for House District 114. J.P.’s story is an inspiring one of service to his country, and I know he will make an excellent representative for his constituents in Tallahassee. We are excited to work with him to defend this seat.”

The Miami-Dade Democratic Party has helped increase the Democratic voter registration gap in House District 114 by 3% and signed up more than 16,000 Democrats for Vote-By-Mail ballots in House District 114 since January of 2020. “We will continue to invest staff time, digital spending and volunteer hours to defend House District 114 in November,” stated Steve Simeonidis, Miami-Dade Democratic Party Chair.

The Miami-Dade Democratic Party spent nearly half a million dollars in 2020 and contributed countless volunteer hours to increase the number of Democrats signed up for Vote-by-Mail and to get out the vote for the August Primary. This led to an unprecedented voter outreach campaign, with direct voter contacts of nearly 200,000 voters alongside an aggressive digital campaign.

“The Get-Out-The-Vote campaign for August was an important test of our digital and field operations leading into the November Election,” said Steve Simeonidis, Chair of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party. “What we saw tonight was a vindication of months and years of planning, fundraising, hiring, and hard work on the part of the Democratic Executive Committee. It shows that Democrats in Miami-Dade are ready for change, and we intend to translate that into a big victory for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and Democrats up and down the ballot on November 3.” 

The Miami-Dade Democratic Executive Committee is the governing body of the Democratic Party in Miami-Dade County. Its mission is to build and sustain a strong Democratic Party in Miami-Dade County for the purpose of electing Democratic candidates to offices at all levels of government.
