Her name is Laura Leyva, and her site can be found here:
or via swingstateproject www.lauraforflorida.com/ssp
The present and retiring representative is a Republican, and picking up this competitive seat is an exciting opportunity for turning things our way in Florida (and beyond).
Read below for more:
As many of you may already know, the older Cuban-Americans in South Florida are stalwart Republican voters, but the younger generation (like Laura) are much more open to Democrats, and this is a fantastic opportunity to capitalize on that in a district that is over 60% latino!
Moreover, her district only slightly skews Republican, with 39% Republicans, 34% Democrats, and 27% Independent, and Kerry lost it by less than 1%.
For those of you with a bigger outlook, she'll be the first Cuban-American Democrat in the Florida legislature, which will be a great start for turning that community our way, and help further our 50-state strategy.
Last of all, for those of you so inclined, she appears to be a hottie too, and it never hurts to have "curb appeal" working for us! In fact, she says that if you donate $100 to her campaign, and include your phone number, she'll give you a personal call!
So, show her your support, either financially (www.lauraforflorida.com/donate.html), by contacting all your friends/family in the Miami area, or helping out with her campaign:
(In the interest of full-disclosure, I have no connection to the campaign, in fact I live in Portland, Oregon and I only read about it this morning while looking at swingstateproject.org, but thought that others would appreciate this opportunity to start turning Florida our way as much as I do).
