Florida Democrats met in Tampa this weekend to elect delegates for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. The political column, The Buzz, characterized the gathering as “sad – given the state of the party in Florida these days.”
Yet, several of the more seasoned party leaders are optimistic about the upcoming elections.
“I think Democrats are going to have a lot of good young people who are going to be running for statewide and local offices. I’m encouraged. I’m an optimist,” former governor and former U.S. Senator Bob Graham said.
