House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will appear in South Florida May 26th for a fundraiser for Democrats and at a public event with U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton.
The luncheon fundraiser is for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and will be hosted by Deutch at a private home in Fort Lauderdale. The minimum donation is $5,000.
Pelosi will also appear at an event organized by Deutch at the Pride Center in Wilton Manors about the Equality Act, a bill to amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to guarantee protections to LGBT individuals. Deutch is one of 194 co-sponsors.
The DCCC has two key targets in South Florida for 2018 currently held by Republicans in left-leaning districts: the open seat created by U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's retirement and U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo's seat. Ros-Lehtinen's district is in Miami-Dade while Curbelo's seat stretches from Westchester to Key West.
