Exclusive Poll: Presidential Politics and the Broward Sheriff’s Race

Filed under: Surveys

By  Jim Kane, The Florida Voter


With the Barack Obama campaign poised for a big win in Broward County, most political observers have assumed that The Democratic ticket’s coattails could sweep Scott Israel into the Sheriff’s office, even though he pales in comparison to Sheriff Al Lamberti in both name recognition and campaign cash.

Geller Vs. Gunzberger: The First Round

Filed under: Surveys


State Senator Steve Geller, who is termed limited this year, has recently announced his intention to challenge fellow Democrat County Commissioner Suzanne Gunzberger for her District 6 Commission seat and has already opened up a campaign account. Challenging a fellow Democrat is highly unusual in Broward unless that Democrat is politically wounded (like Ilene Lieberman’s 1996 challenge of long-time Commissioner Jerry Thompson).

But Steve Geller is no ordinary challenger. A former state legislator and now a state senator, Steve Geller is one the most politically powerful and influential Democrats in state government. His name has appeared in both the local and state-wide media on almost a weekly basis.

This issue will undoubtedly find its way into the campaign as we get nearer to the primary. Read the rest of this entry »
