Getting out the vote for Dems, GBTLA-style



The parade of Democratic candidates across the stage at Skipper's Smokehouse seemed endless.

Congressional hopefuls John Dicks, Bill Mitchell and Doug Tudor; Phyllis Busansky, who wants to be Hillsborough County's supervisor of elections; Hillsborough County Commission candidate Kevin Beckner, to name a few.

There were office-holders, too: Tampa City Council member Mary Mulhern and Florida CFO Alex Sink.

"Thanks for all your help and support of me up in Tallahassee," Sink told the cheering crowd.

The occasion? A Get Out the Vote concert fundraiser sponsored by the Hillsborough County Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered and Allied Democratic Caucus.

Just three years after its creation, the caucus has earned a reputation locally as one of the most dedicated, hard-working and organized Democratic groups. Read full story here.
