Florida New Majority and SEIU Florida State Council build largest political campaign in the state.

Miami, FL – With less than 30 days to go before the Nov. 6 election, polls show that Florida remains the thin purple line that defines the national swing from red to blue. Beyond the major money being pumped into the state by mega PACs, the most underestimated story is the battle for voters happening on the streets.

Florida New Majority and SEIU Florida State Council have formed a strategic partnership to directly combat the undue influence of conservative corporate-funded PAC slush funds with the grassroots-based Breakthrough 2012 campaign. It has mobilized more than 400 volunteers and staff recruited from the community in the Miami-Dade, Tampa Bay, Orlando-Kissimmee, Jacksonville and West Palm Beach areas to canvass and phone bank likely voters and to activate them in the campaign. As of last week, the campaign has knocked on more than 180,000 doors and conducted hundreds of house meetings and community events.
