Tampa DINO Bob Buckhorn

 Local Democrats are giddy about their party's chances in the November election and it showed at the party's annual fundraising dinner this month.   Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, wasn't invited to speak, nor was he last year. There has been tension between the mayor and local Democrats over a number of issues — his tendency to support or work with Republicans such as Attorney General Pam Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott, his lack of enthusiasm for engagement with Cuba and his defense of the Tampa Police Department in its targeting of black bicycle riders. Some local Democrats say Buckhorn's disagreements with constituencies including civil rights activists, unions and liberals could doom his 2018 hopes.  here
