Florida Democrats Not Happy With Trump’s “Bus Tour”


A recent POLITICO article detailed how “Trump’s campaign knocks on a million doors a week” while “Biden’s knocks on zero” as the 2020 election draws closer.

Jenn Ridder, the national states director for the Biden campaign, however, provided some context as to why the door knocking has not taken place.

“At first I was nervous, but our response rates on phone calls and texts are much higher and people are not necessarily wanting someone to go up to their door right now,” she explained. As well, “you get to throw a lot of the rule book out the window and try out new things.”

That being said, the Trump administration announced this week that it was launching a bus tour in the sunshine state, which is a battleground state that President Trump (R) won in the 2016 Presidential elections.

In response, Terrie Rizzo (D), the Florida Democratic Party Chair, released a statement criticizing the Trump campaign, questioning “how many more Americans have to die before Donald Trump takes the coronavirus pandemic seriously?”

Rizzo commented that “Florida just had its deadliest month of the crisis, unemployment is still in the double digits, and the Trump campaign is recklessly endangering public safety to distract from Trump’s failed leadership.”

“Floridians want a plan to get out of this crisis so they don’t have to worry about risking their health and their lives when they go to the grocery store – not a bus tour,” Rizzo asserted.

In turn, Rizzo called “for a president who will get us through the pandemic and rebuild our economy, while keeping Americans safe, rather than his own re-election.”
