Drinks on Hackworth
The Bob Hackworth for Congress campaign is holding a voter drive at the bar, located at 937 Douglas Avenue, from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday. People who aren't registered to vote can get a free beer if they sign up to vote. Registered voters can bring their voter ID card and get a free beer as well.
Under 21? You get a soda.
A volunteer from the Barack Obama campaign will attend as well, according to the Hackworth campaign.
Hackworth, the mayor of Dunedin, is a Democrat running for the District 10 seat now held by U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young. On Tuesday, he'll face fellow Democrats Samm Simpson and Max Linn to see who takes on the 38-year incumbent in the general election. District 10 includes most of Pinellas County, excluding Clearwater and most of south St. Petersburg.
