Democrats' Labor Day Picnic Draws 'Name' Candidates Deep in Party Stronghold

September 3, 2017 - 4:45pm

If nobody shows but the candidates who promised to attend Monday's 16th annual North Broward Democratic Club Labor Day Picnic, it likely will be one of the most politically significant holiday celebrations in Florida.

Broward County is perhaps the largest Democratic outpost in the state -- 595,455 registered Dems to 254,876 Republicans and 326,990 with no political affiliation. Miami-Dade is not far behind: 585,191 Democrats to 370,977 Republicans.

The North Broward club advertises Monday's occasion as a chance to "meet Democratic officials, candidates and rising stars."

Among the Dems promised to be there: U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, Congressman Ted Deutch, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democratic Party President Sally Boynton Brown, state Sen. Perry Thurston, gubernatorial candidates Andrew Gillum and Gwen Graham, congressional candidate Tim Canova, Broward County Commissioner Nan Rich, and many more.

See the club's announcement on this page for a more complete listing.

Leslie Wimes, president of the Florida Democratic African-American Women Caucus, said even though she wasn't specifically asked to attend, she wouldn't miss it.

"Since so many people seem to be fascinated these days by the events I attend, I thought I'd drop in on this one, say hello to my fellow Democrats and celebrate the gains made by unions for working people."
The event is set for 1 p.m. at Pompano Beach Community Park, South Pavilion. Hamburgers and hotdogs are on the house. Come prepared for a rain-or-shine, buy-your-own-drinks affair -- and bring a dish to share and a chair to sit on.

Free food paid for with other peoples money. Typical Democrat BS.

The notice is pretty funny. You have some of those elected officials who are actually running for their job (again) and the remainder of elected officials are only going for the free hot dogs!

Thank you for the smile, Teddy. :)

Has anyone told these democrats that labor day is for people that actually work?
