MoveOn.org: We’re not involved in Negron-Ramos race, but can’t speak for members’ “personal activities”by George Bennett | July 29th, 2009
“As a federal PAC, MoveOn.org Political Action does not work on state legislative races and is not involved in the Florida District 28 special election.”
Negron said his grass-roots volunteers in St. Lucie County have encountered Ramos supporters on the campaign trail and “several of them said they were working with MoveOn and they were getting out the vote for the Democratic candidate.”
Negron said he didn’t have a problem with the purported MoveOn involvement, but wanted his own supporters to know so they would not be complacent.
While MoveOn isn’t playing an official role in the race, spokeswoman Ilyse Hogue noted in an e-mail that “MoveOn members are private citizens who are involved in many activities beyond the scope of the organization. I cannot speak about Florida MoveOn members’ personal activities.”
