South Florida’s the place to be for candidates running for statewide office today. As politicians rally voters to early voting locations, where can you meet with candidates for Governor or Senate? And where will candidates’ paths converge?

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jeff Greene will campaign heavily today in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties. After attending a service at Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church with Bishop W. Oshea Granger in the morning, he will speak to the Kings Point Democratic Club at Flanders Club House in Delray Beach at 10 a.m.

Democratic candidate Philip Levine will also be at the Kings Point meeting. Levine also plans to ride with hip-hop legend Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell to early voting at the North Dade Regional Library at 9 a.m., where Greene will campaign at noon.

A Red For Education Teacher Rally hosted by state Reps. Shevrin Jones and Nicholas Duran at the Betty T. Ferguson Community Center in Miami Gardens will also draw candidates. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson will speak at the rally at noon, and all five major Democratic candidates for governor are expected to attend as well, including Gwen Graham, Andrew Gillum, Chris King, Greene and Levine.

Levine then heads to an early voting rally at the Sunrise Civic Center at 2 p.m. before heading to Wilton Manors for early voting at Hagen Park, where he will appear with Mayor Gary Resnick.

At the same time, Nelson and all the Democrats running for governor will attend the 2 p.m. Stronger Together Early Vote GOTV Rally at the Sunrise Civic Center Theater.

But it’s not just Democrats campaigning down south today. Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis will head to a North Miami-Dade Meet-and-Greet at 4:30 p.m. at Shuckers Waterfront Grille Rooftop in North Bay Village.

Meanwhile, the New Florida Vision PAC will work events for Gillum, including a Brunch and Vote event at Zest Miami from noon to 5 p.m. and a “Tamales and Gillum! Hollywood” event from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This post will be updated as candidates and campaigns announce plans.
