The Florida Democratic Party (FDP) today announced that statewide county caucuses will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2012. The first ever statewide caucuses will kick-off the delegate selection process, which will determine who will be part of the Florida delegation that will attend the national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“Florida Democrats are looking forward to the National Convention this summer and are energized heading into 2012,” said Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Arceneaux. “The county caucuses are an exciting chance for Democrats to get involved and help rally support for President Obama. Whether you’ve volunteered in the past or are brand new to the party, we urge you to join us on Saturday, May 5th and we hope to see you in Charlotte this summer.”
After being selected at the county level, delegates will proceed to the party’s statewide convention where they will take part in the final phase of the delegate selection process in Tampa, Florida on June 1-3, 2012. Those selected at the state convention will attend the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina this summer.
