More than 500 Kerry supporters were at "The Moon" Thursday night watching the speech.
The crowd comprised of members from the Florida Democratic Party and Leon County for Kerry Volunteers.
Kerry supporters felt Thursday night's speech was perfect. Monica O'Neal, Kerry/Edwards supporter, said, “it was a very good speech. He hit on all the points he promised. I was uplifted by it. I felt like I trusted him and that help is on the way.”
Kevin Walsh, Kerry/Edwards supporter, said, “I thought he came across very well. He presented himself very residentially. It was better than I'd even hoped.”
The Republican National Convention is set for late August in New York and coincides with the primary election.
The general election is in November.
