Bob Buckhorn to campaign for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire

OCTAVIO JONES / Tampa Bay Times (2015)



Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn is heading to New Hampshire this weekend to campaign for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Buckhorn has a record of supporting Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, going back to 1991.

That’s when Buckhorn’s boss, then-Mayor Sandy Freedman, became one of Clinton’s early supporters in Florida, giving his campaign an important boost at a key moment. Like Clinton, Buckhorn is aligned with the party’s centrist Democratic Leadership Council. In 1996, Buckhorn chaired President Clinton’s re-election campaign in Hillsborough County.
