in Statewide by

Dan Gelber is everything a progressive Democrat could want in a candidate.  Ideologically, Senator Gelber has a proven track record of fighting for causes important to both liberal and moderate wings of the party.  Personally, the man is simply impressive, with a distinguished resume and a dignified, but welcoming disposition that just radiates a sense of gravitas. I had the opportunity to speak with Senator Gelber last Thursday when he was in St. Petersburg and I immediately remembered why we…

Democrats quietly line up in Charlie Crist’s corner

in Statewide/The Bay and the 'Burg by

You may never have heard of Peggy Land, unless you’re a Tampa Democratic political insider. She’s a proverbial little old lady in tennis shoes, but along with her late husband John, she has also been a faithful Democratic political donor – some $20,000 to the party and its candidates over the last decade or so, plus more from fundraisers in their home, and none to Republicans. So who is Land backing in the U.S. Senate race? Gov. Charlie Crist, a former Republican…
