Monday night progressive dream-boat, Representative Scott Randolph, was elected chair of the Orange County Democratic Executive Committee. He replaces out going chair Amy Mercado.
Representative Randolph has been a champion for Democratic issues in Tallahassee, including sponsoring pro-LGBT legislation. Earlier this year he made national news by daring to say the word "uterus" on the House floor.
Randolph told the Orlando Sentinel he wants to get the party more involved in campaigns. "We have to make sure we have good, viable candidates in as many races as possible, and give them the confidence that there's a local party there that can make things happen for them," Randolph said. "Everybody agrees that Central Florida is the battleground area of the battleground state that could determine the presidency, so it's important that we have viable candidates up and down the ticket to try to bring voters out."
Congrats to Rep. Randolph!
