Washington, D.C. – Latino Victory Fund congratulated endorsed candidate Annette Taddeo for winning the Democratic primary election in the race for Florida’s 27th Congressional District.
Statement on Annette Taddeo from Nathalie Rayes, Latino Victory Fund president and CEO:
“We are excited to congratulate Annette Taddeo on advancing to the general election. Annette is a strong and steadfast champion for the Latino community in South Florida—she’s in it for the people. She’s a dedicated public servant who understands that her district’s priorities are bread and butter issues that impact their day-to-day lives—a robust economy, good-paying jobs, and access to affordable health care.
“Florida’s 27th District deserves a representative like Annette who will take meaningful action to move their community forward, not one who takes action to dismantle progress. Latino Victory is proud to congratulate Annette for her primary win, and we are ready to throw down the gauntlet to ensure she wins in November.”
Latino Victory hosted the ¡Vamos, Florida! weekend of action during the first weekend of early voting and ahead of the Florida primary election on August 23. Latino Victory co-founder Eva Longoria, board Chair Luis A. Miranda, Jr. and President and CEO Nathalie Rayes, headlined a series of events, including GOTV rallies with candidate Senator Annette Taddeo. Miranda and Rayes joined Taddeo for a canvassing kickoff Celebration in Little Havana, Miami. On Sunday, August 24, Longoria and Rayes joined Annette Taddeo and a cadre of organizers at her campaign office for a GOTV rally and canvass kick-off.
Latino Victory Fund endorsed Taddeo for Congress, and she’s part of the organization’s investments in Latino candidates and voters in this key battleground Latino state.
