Flip Florida Blue: New website gives Democratic candidates running for office in Florida resources

Dr. Cindy Banyai (D, FL19) launches free peer to peer network for candidates across Florida to support Democrats running in every district

Fort Myers, FL - Flip Florida Blue is new initiative to support Democrats across Florida. The initiative is led by a group of candidates running for office at various levels. Dr. Cindy Banyai, Congressional candidate for Florida 19, founded the group with a leadership team including Maureen Porras and Katherine Norman, candidates for Florida House of Representatives and Florida Senate respectively.

Flip Florida Blue is a free peer to peer network across Florida that allows candidates to share resources and provides a comprehensive list of Democrats running in every district. The goal of the network is to give candidates a place to share information and support each other to elect more Democrats and turn out the vote. You can find more information about the network at

Dr. Banyai states “Flip Florida Blue fills the need to know who is running where and how to contact them as Democratic candidates and activists work to support candidates across the state in their historic run contesting every race. The website and related social media will help to connect and amplify the voice of these candidates so we can more easily support one another. I’m so excited to expand and build our community of Democrats across the state!”

There will be a live virtual launch event this Saturday, August 1st at 1:00PM EST. All are welcome to attend and can register to stream the event at
