MAYDAY.US Volunteers Contact Hundreds of Voters

Unknown professor passes 40% of the vote powered by grassroots anger at political establishment


MAYDAY.US-endorsed law professor Tim Canova was defeated by incumbent Debbie Wasserman-Schultz last night with 56.8% to 43.2% of the vote.

The MAYDAY.US Florida team directly contacted hundreds of likely voters by knocking doors and phone banking.

A statement from MAYDAY.US Florida:

"Despite falling short, the very fact that this race was competitive and forced Debbie Wasserman Schultz to defend her record and campaign for the first time during a primary sent a powerful message to the corrupt political establishment and put others on notice, you can't back big money over the people and not face consequences on election day." -Rob Davis, Coordinator, MAYDAY.US Florida
