Dear FFRW Members and Friends,
Where does the time go; Summer is almost over, Students are back at School and the 1st Republican Debate took place on Aug. 23, 2023 in Milwaukee, WI- home to the RNC Convention July 15-18, 2024.
FFRW Clubs have completed and submitted NFRW Achievement Awards, Political & Campaign Volunteer Awards, Caring for America Awards, Armed Services Awards and more. The Awards will be presented at the NFRW Biennial Convention- Sept. 29-Oct. 1. FFRW will be sending 10 Delegates and we'll have over 30 FFRW Members in Attendance. We will be sharing the Award Winners as well as the great information we receive in the workshops at NFRW Biennial in Oklahoma City, OK upon our return to FL and at our FFRW Biennial Convention Nov. 17-19, 2023
FFRW Clubs can be very helpful in both the RNC Bank Your Vote program, as well as encouraging all your members to Register for a Vote By Mail Ballot. All registered voters must request a Vote by Mail Ballot each Election Cycle- request your vote by Mail Ballot at your Supervisor of Elections Website- Today! SOE Look-up

FFRW Clubs can also Register new voters, encourage NPA's to switch to Republican as we are a closed Primary State. Many of the new residents that have moved in the last 2 years come from states that do not have closed Primaries (Only 7 States are closed- FL, DE,NV,KY,NM,NY & PA). A conversation starter is - Do you want to vote in the Republican Presidential Primary in 2024? You must be a Registered Republican to vote in the Republican Presidential Primary.
There are 13 Republican candidates for President (2016- 17 Candidates). The 2024 Republican Presidential Primary begins with the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 15, followed by NV, NH & SC Primaries by Feb. 8th. Super Tuesday 2024 is March 5 (15 States). Florida Presidential Primary is Mar. 19 along with 4 other states.
It will be an exciting year for the Republican Presidential Primary as the Democrats have all but ruled out Joe Biden Campaigning. Remember that the FFRW and the FFRW Clubs do not Endorse. Individuals can be for their candidate, the purpose of the Primary is for each state to select their Nominee and to vote at the RNC Convention. It is a fierce battle and the field will narrow down as we get through the Republican Primaries.
FFRW Clubs and Members don't forget the important local races in your county. One of the most important races is the School Board. It all begins with the School Board and all local races matter. Get to know what the candidates Stand for and help the candidates that meet your expectations with your Time, Treasure &/or Talent.
Thank you to all the FFRW members/candidates that have stepped up to run. We will be announcing all of the FFRW Member/Candidates in early 2024, from the School House to Congress!
