The 15th Annual Blue Gala fundraiser of the Lake County Democratic Party will be on Saturday, March 23, 2019 (6-7 PM – cocktail hour, 7-10 – dinner, keynoter, dancing) at Lake Receptions in Mount Dora.
Keynoting the event will be Andrew Gillum, CNN Political Commentator, former Mayor of Tallahassee and 2018 Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate.
Mayor Gillum nearly won the governorship against Ron DeSantis with 49.2% of the vote (vs. DeSantis’ 49.6%). The 32,463 vote deficit was out of nearly 8.2 million votes cast in Florida! Not since 2000 has Florida seen a closer race which resulted in a recount of three races – Gillum’s, Senator Bill Nelson’s and Nikki Fried, who won her race for Florida Agriculture Commissioner.
