A real Florida man…

Chris is a blue collar worker who is tired of seeing the elites destroy our state. He grew up in Southwest Florida, works here and takes care of his mother and brother – and he works hard in the scorching heat, driving trucks by day. He also works as a stand-up comedian by night. Chris is a true Florida man.

But Chris Proia is more than just a truck driver and a fun guy; he's a beacon of hope and resilience. Juggling responsibilities for his disabled mother and younger, adult brother, Chris embodies the spirit of a working man who understands how hard it is to make a living in a red city, red county, and red state. Despite these challenges, Chris has filed to run for Florida's 33rd Senate District in Lee County, demonstrating his unwavering commitment to making a difference.


Chris' journey is a testament to the power of ordinary citizens facing extraordinary challenges. He is a symbol of perseverance and shows that one can strive for positive change even in the face of adversity.

His campaign is not just about one man; it represents the hopes and dreams of countless people who long for a better future, like him and his partner Danika Fornear (Democrat for FL House District 83 – Daiky KOS: @DanikaFornear) and over 20 other committed candidates.


All of this massive effort started with a firm called Southwest Strategies (run by Danika Fornear and her good friend Cindy Banyai – the founder): Together they have identified and worked with candidates for seats ranging from school board and city council to the House and Senate. Together they are working tirelessly to turn Florida blue this year.

This collective movement is more than a political campaign; it is a call to action for all who believe in the power of unity, community and progress.


With Southwest Strategies at the helm and a diverse group of passionate candidates at its side, there is a renewed sense of hope and possibility. Their commitment to public service and devotion to the community are paving the way for a more inclusive, just and fair future. It's not just about winning an election; it's about starting a movement that inspires others to believe in the power of their voices and the strength of their convictions as we work together and support one another.

Together, we can turn the tide and make a lasting impact. Let's unite behind Chris Proia and all the courageous candidates who are committed to making positive change in Lee County. Our collective efforts can and will make a difference. Join us in making history!
