Dem Notes

“Yes, we can.”

  • “Here in Florida, you can determine the outcome of this election. We win Florida and it’s all over.”—Joe Biden at a drive-in rally in Miramar.
  • “Folks, el voto Latino puede hacer la diferencia aqui en Florida y en todos los Estados Unidos.” (“The Latino vote can be the difference here in Florida and in all of the United States.”) That was DNC Chairman Tom Perez, who was recently in Miami for a series of community events on behalf of Biden for President Florida.
  • The Biden campaign is releasing a flurry of TV ads that will target NFL fans. “Monday Night Football” and “Thursday Night Football” are included, plus cherry-picked games of teams in battleground states—notably the Tampa Bay Bucs, the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
  • 113,000: The margin of victory by Trump in Florida in 2016. 330,000: The margin that Trump won by with seniors in 2016. Polls now show senior voters shifting significantly from Trump to Biden.
  • “It is residents 65 and older who still swing elections in the Sunshine State.”—Florida Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
  • The Biden campaign raised a record-breaking $383 million in September. It has also surpassed $500 million in paid digital and television ads this year—compared to $438 million for the Trump campaign.
  • Biden’s town hall on ABC: 13.9 million viewers. Trump’s town hall on NBC, MSNBC and CNBC: 13.0 million viewers. The Sept. 29 debate: 73.2 million viewers via 16 networks.
  • Jaime Harrison, the African-American Democrat seriously challenging South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, raised $57 million from July through September. That’s the highest quarterly fund-raising total for any Senate candidate in U.S. history. Go, Jaime.
