Democrats to host fundraiser for Pinellas candidates



ST. PETERSBURG- Ed Helm is no longer the leader of the Pinellas County Democrats.

But you wouldn't know it by the private fundraiser Helm is hosting Saturday night.

Helm, a former St. Petersburg mayoral candidate, has invited DNC member Jon Ausman to his house to share his war stories. Ausman is the activist who fought to persaude Democrats to count the votes of Florida delegates in last year's presidential primary battle,

Guests have been asked to chip in $50. The event will benefit Pinellas Democratic campaigns.

Helm said he also invited City Council and mayoral candidates.

Will you be there? Let us know.
