Anna Eskamani is running a strong campaign with a bold progressive vision. An Orlando native, she has a long history of fighting for all Floridians. She believes that health care is a right, not a privilege, and she will be a fierce advocate for expanding affordable access to health care for everyone, especially women.
Anna is running for this open seat against two Republicans. This is our chance to flip this seat, in a district that Hillary Clinton won by 7 points, from red to blue. Not only could we flip the seat, we could fill it with an unabashed progressive who has been an active MoveOn member for years and who will work to increase access to education, to ensure equal pay for equal work, and to make sure that all our communities are represented and have a voice in the political process.
Here’s some of what Anna said about her race: “Our campaign to take back Florida State House District 47 is more than just a moment; this is a movement, powered by the people of Florida. For the past ten years, I have committed my life’s work to holding politicians accountable while empowering my community and protecting our rights. Our election will be historic, and it feels good knowing that MoveOn members are by my side.“
There are more than 3,500 MoveOn members in Florida’s 47th House District. Here are just a few reasons some local MoveOn members are supporting Anna:
