On Sunday, Democratic hopefuls for office up and down the ballot rallied with supporters at the Orange County Supervisor of Elections for “Souls to the Polls”, an event that draws voters from their Sunday church services to early voting locations.
Senator Bill Nelson led the group of Democratic candidates across Kaley Avenue, which included Sheriff Jerry Demings, who’s running for Orange County Mayor and his wife, Congresswoman Val Demings, who is running for reelection.
Other candidates who participated in the event who are running for the support of Apopka voters included County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, Demings’ mayoral opponent, County Commissioner Pete Clarke, Democrat Nikki Fried, who is running for Commissioner of Agriculture and Democrat Businessman Chris King, who is a longshot contender for Florida Governor.
Election day is Tuesday.
