US Senate Candidate Dan Gelber (D-Miami) is living up to his promise of volunteering 100 Days of Service.  By emphasizing volunteerism, Gelber carries on a long tradition paved by other FL-Dems such as Lawton Chiles and Bob Graham.  But more importantly, Gelber embodies and encapsulates President Obama's Call to America.  

Gelber began his campaign by restoring native plant habitat at Oleta River State Park.

Next, he spent a day at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.

Most recently Gelber helped out at PET Ministry: The Gift of Mobility.

What strikes me most about Senator Dan Gelber is his VISION.  He was one of the first super-delegates in Florida to support Barack Obamafor President.  Gelber digs deep into social issuesand provides well-reasoned analysis.  He's been blogging for quite awile, and nowadays he's Twittering updates on the current Florida Legislative Session.  

Dan Gelber just might be Florida's First I-Candidate.

He's been picking up some pretty good endorsements.  Steve Schale (Obama's Florida Lead Man) is running Gelber's Senate campaign.  Things are picking up.  It's going to be a great run.

Mel Martinez struck out.  Jeb Bush took the balk.  No GOP heavy-hitters have stepped up to the plate.  Marco Rubio is sheepish.  Charlie Crist is coy.

Florida 2010 looks like a prime opportunity to turn a Red Senate Seat Blue!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      I can't say for sure, but you can check out  I know he's spoken out about Florida gerrymandering, if that gives you an indication.  

      Dan Gelber was a State Rep. for several terms and served as the Florida House Minority Leader.  He is currently serving as State Senator.

      Hope this helps.
