Hillsborough Dems raise cash at dinner
More than 250 supporters turned out for the Hillsborough County Democrats' Jefferson-Jackson Dinner on Saturday. (Hillsborough Republicans drew more than 500 to their Lincoln Day dinner in July.) Party chairman Michael Steinberg said he expected the event to net about $25,000, which will be used for a mailer supporting all the county's Democratic candidates. Opening speaker Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio started her speech with important news. "The Rays are in the play-offs," she said. "That means Obama can win. Yes we can!."
