In just two days it will be 2010, and I have no doubt in my mind that when the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve we will be starting an historic year in Florida.
The election next November will be another one that we will tell our grandchildren about. You've heard talk about the 2010 election before. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change Florida for the better; with every statewide elected office open, a U.S. Senate seat, and many state legislative races up for grabs.
But, the political landscape is not why I am sure that we are set to make history when the clock strikes midnight- it's because of you.
You and thousands of other Floridians have decided to help shape our destiny as a state and broken a record for the number of grassroots donors for our Party. If you include all the people that have given to our candidates it's been an amazing year for Democrats. We are coming together to make history in Florida.
Let's finish the year with a bang before midnight tomorrow and show everyone that we are ready to win next November.
There isn't a more important time to build our party for the next election. The historic opportunity we have isn't just a chance to make electoral change, but to change the course of our state.
We all know the last two governors haven't built a solid foundation for our future - just look around at our own friends and neighbors. Too many Floridians are suffering, looking for jobs, and trying to hold on to their homes.
We need to win because it gives us the opportunity to change the face of Florida with new leaders like Alex Sink, Kendrick Meek, and other strong Democrats up and down the ballot.
The only way we are ever going to do that is with your help and the help of thousands of Floridians like you. We have already made our own little piece of history this year - but let's reach even higher - so we can make a lot more history next year.
Please take a minute and donate today before our fundraising deadline at midnight tomorrow and help us end the year with a bang.
Thank you so much for everything you've done this year - from donating to standing up for Florida. Together we will make 2010 a year to remember.

A message from Congresswoman Karen Thurman

Chair, Florida Democratic Party

For the past few weeks Floridians from all over the state have been coming together to fulfill the promise of change we voted for last November by helping the President pass real health care reform.

We have great Democratic leaders that are already fighting for health care reform, but like the 2008 campaign we also have thousands of people like you working in their own neighborhoods to spread the message about how we need health care reform now.

As Florida Democrats our work for change didn't stop last November - with the need to change Tallahassee and the need. Your help over the last few months has shown that I know we can do it.

Florida's families and small businesses are being crushed by sky-rocketing health care costs, and we are losing the choices we value most. Forty-five million Americans don't have health insurance.  In Florida, nearly 21 percent of our friends and neighbors lack insurance, making Florida 48th in the nation with only Texas and New Mexico having a higher percent of uninsured residents. Families' benefits are eroding because they can't keep up with higher premiums, co-pays and deductibles. Seniors are choosing to cut their medications in half due to the high cost of prescription drugs.  And parents are skipping a doctor's visit for their children because it's just too expensive. That's why President Obama needs your help.

After visiting Florida a couple weeks ago, DNC Chairman Tim Kaine recorded a special video update for you on the ongoing campaign to pass real health care reform.

Please watch the video, pass it along, and if you aren't already, read about how to get involved:

As a member of Congress I worked on health care reform for years and I know how important it is for the people to get involved and make sure that all our leaders know that we need work with President Obama to pass real health care reform.

So, while Congress works on the details of legislation, people like you across the country are organizing to build support for comprehensive reform that will reduce rising health care costs for families, businesses and government; allows all patients choice in their own coverage and their own doctor; and ensures that quality, affordable health care is available to all Americans.

With the leadership of the President and hard work from all of us on the ground we can make history again. So please help us spread the word about how you can help by watching Chairman Kaine's video update and passing it along to your friends:

Thank you for taking the time to watch this update and pass it along. And thanks to the many people like you are already hard at work for Democrats across Florida and to help President Obama pass health care reform.
