    I'm in the opposite corner of the country, but I do what I can to goad on our local wingnuts and try to split off the "moderates." In my county alone (King County, WA, which includes Seattle and its Eastside suburbs), we have flipped two Republican state Representatives in the last couple years and have made Democratic state Senators out of them. They both said they preferred to be in a party with sane, civilized people.

    There are many opportunities -- in the workplace, in social events, in letters to the editor, or comment threads on local blogs.

    Florida seems to be very fertile ground for these kinds of efforts. Multiply by 1,000 "See what your party has become? Are THESE the kind of people you want to be associated with?" and strange things can happen.
