NEWS: August 30, 2020: Kristy and Richard Thripp have endorsed Kim O’Connor in Florida’s 2nd congressional district.
We lost the August 18th, 2020 Democratic primary for Florida’s 6th congressional district by 3%. We are very sad, but this was a strong showing for a first-time candidate. We are proud of the 28,661 votes we received and your support! We will be continuing our work toward Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, universal basic income, and making Donald Trump a one-term president.
Like many campaigns, I financed some of our operations with personal loans. Please feel free to continue to donate or to leave your recurring monthly contribution in place if you would like to help. We are very proud of the movement we built as political newcomers on a shoestring budget.
Dr. Richard Thripp
The people of Florida are tired of being ignored by their politicians. “Business as usual” is not enough anymore. We need change. We need higher wages. We need more jobs. We need stronger protections and better benefits. I’m Richard Thripp, and I believe the working people of Florida deserve more from their federal government.
