Political Connections Sun: How the Dem Leadership Council came to dominate the I-4 Corridor



Al From, founder of the influential Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) that helped reform the beleaguered Democratic party in the 1980s, appears Sunday on Political Connections on Bay News 9. From has a new book, "The New Democrats and the Return to Power," which offers some striking comparisons between the 1980s Democratic party and the Republican party of today. Among the early acolytes of the DLC's centrist message?: Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, and Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown.

Political Connections airs at 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. in Tampa Bay. Here's a clip.
