President Biden Allocated 224 Florida Delegates Without Primary

President Joe Biden was declared the automatic winner of the Democratic presidential primary and allocated 224 delegates from Florida without a vote.




Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried painted a clear choice in November for voters — continued progress or the “end of our democracy as we know it.”

“As we inch closer to the November elections, every state primary day reminds us of the choice we have to make — a choice between the continued progress of our country or the end of our democracy as we know it,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “The contrast in this election couldn’t be clearer between Donald Trump, who is running on hatred, revenge and retribution, and President Biden, who is fighting to protect our freedoms and democracy and to make sure everyone has a fair shot.”

Progressive Democrats were not happy with the automatic winner designation and the fact Biden won Florida delegates without an actual presidential primary election in Florida. With progressives angry, the big question is will this political divide within the party hurt overall Democratic voter turnout or participation in the general election? The FDP doesn’t think so, but they know the stakes are high.

“Florida Democrats are proud to support President Biden and Vice-President Harris for another term in the White House, and we will continue to fight tooth and nail to help get them there — we can’t allow Donald Trump anywhere near the presidency ever again,” the Florida Democratic Party Chair added.
