WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:
Last night in Tampa, Hillsborough County Republicans elected Deborah Cox-Roush to be their new Chairperson.
Meanwhile, Pinellas County Democrats will vote for a new chairman tomorrow night.
Ramsey McLaughlin, Mark Hanisee and Jack Killingsworth are the candidates.
Tonight, we speak to Jack Killingsworth, who was just on the ballot in Pinellas County last month challenging longtime incumbent Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark. He lost.
Killingsworth is an electrical engineer; he worked locally for Raytheon and Honeywell for close to 40 years. He’s a former treasurer for the Party, and is the founder and director of the Florida Democratic Party’s Netroots Coalition.
WMNF asked him what he can bring to the party that isn’t currently being done.
Tomorrow night, we’ll look at the race for Chair for Democrats in Pasco County.
