November 4th, 2016

Jimmy Buffett will perform at a Get Out The Vote rally on Monday in St. Petersburg, Florida:

Buffett is scheduled to perform at a get-out-the-vote rally for Democrats Hillary Clinton, Patrick Murphy, and Charlie Crist on Monday. The event is meant to urge voters to get to the polls on Election Day.

Buffett is expected to be joined by Murphy and Crist. He’ll also perform a short set of songs with Country Music Musician of the Year Mac McAnally.

Murphy faces Sen. Marco Rubio in the U.S. Senate race, while Crist, the state’s former governor, is hoping to unseat Rep. David Jolly.

Mayor Rick Kriseman will welcome Buffett and the candidates. The event is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Albert Whitted Park in downtown St. Petersburg. The event is free and open to the public.

Buffett has played get out the vote rallies and fundraisers in the past for President Obama and several Florida candidates including Bill Nelson, Gwen Graham, and Alex Sink.
