Hillary snags Buckhorn



Former Tampa city council member Bob Buckhorn, a savvy political strategist, fundraiser, and former Evan Bayh supporter, has signed on with Hillary Clinton's campaign. He's helping  host a Dec. 4 $250-per head Clinton fundraiser at the home of Pat Frank. The headliner is Clinton campaign chairman and former DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe. 

"It is clear to me than nobody is better prepared to be the next president of the United States than Sen. Clinton,'' Buckhorn said. "Throughout the campaign she has proven her mettle, demonstrated her command of the issues and offered a vision for an America that we all aspire for. Now more than ever we need a president that inspires us, not divides us and who is ready on day one to lead this country."
