Statement from SCDP re the Acquittal of Donald Trump

On Saturday, forty-three Republican Senators put their political party and their careers ahead of our country and voted to acquit former President Donald Trump. On a hypocritical technicality – and despite the damning evidence presented by the magnificent House impeachment managers – these Senators chose to ignore the most grievous constitutional crime ever committed by a president.

We are enraged – but not surprised – by the cowardice of Florida Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, who both put their loyalty to Donald Trump ahead of the rule of law and the oaths they swore to uphold. They are now clearly complicit in the outrageous attack on our nation’s Capitol and our democratic institutions that we all witnessed on January 6th. History will judge Rubio and Scott harshly, and Florida voters will remember their cowardice at the ballot box.

Marco Rubio is up for re-election in 2022; Rick Scott will be up in 2024. We are organizing to defeat them now … and our work starts with direct and active voter contact, registering more Democrats, building up our Vote By Mail registrations, and to get out the vote. Join with us as we get to work!
