Florida Democratic Party Chair Karen Thurman today announced the appointment of Scott Arceneaux as Executive Director for the 2010 election cycle. Additionally, Arceneaux will handle the duties of the Party's Political Director.
"Scott's proven record of success and strong leadership will help Florida Democrats end the status quo and move our state forward. I am excited to work with Chair Karen Thurman and her team to bring change to Florida," said CFO Alex Sink.
"The Florida Democratic Party is in the best shape it has been in years," said U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. "We won't miss a beat with Scott."
"As we work to bring change to Florida in 2010, Scott's leadership and experience will be key to our efforts. With Scott's help, the Florida Democratic Party will continue our momentum and seize our historic opportunity to change Tallahassee by electing Alex Sink as our next Governor, electing a strong Democrat to serve with Sen. Bill Nelson in the U.S. Senate, and electing more Democrats to the U.S. Congress, the Cabinet, and Florida's Legislature," said Chair Thurman.
"I am excited to join Chair Thurman and the Florida Democratic Party, as we fight to bring change to Florida and support President Obama's efforts implementing his vision of change. Florida Democrats are organized and energized going into the 2010 campaign. I look forward to helping build upon the party's successes by electing Democrats across Florida," said Arceneaux.
Arceneaux brings to the Florida Democratic Party his extensive experience managing Democratic campaigns across the nation. Most recently, Arceneaux helped State Sen. Creigh Deeds in his stunning Virginia Democratic Primary victory in June. He served as the National Political Director for Chris Dodd's Presidential Campaign. Additionally, Arceneaux was the Executive Director for the Louisiana Democratic Party from 2001 to 2004, where he helped re-elect Sen. Mary Landrieu and elect a Democratic Governor.
