PRESS RELEASE: LGBTQ Champion Rick Kriseman Edges Baker In Primary With Runoff Next
In the final two weeks of the St. Petersburg Primary Election Equality Florida Action PAC made 12,000 calls to 6,000 pro-equality voters about the election and launched an aggressive social media program reaching thousands of people in support of Mayor Kriseman.
“Tonight we proved we know who our true friend is,” said Nadine Smith, Executive Director of Equality Florida. “Mayor Kriseman’s stellar record stands in stark contrast to Rick Baker who as mayor treated us with indifference and contempt. We made sure people remembered that in the primary, and we will be back in November.”
