Congratulations to the winners in Tuesday’s election — and to everyone who helped make those wins possible by making phone calls, knocking on doors, waving signs, manning polls, and/or writing a check or two.
Of course, we had some notable disappointments on the state level, and we ought to be thinking about what we could do better next time to produce the bigger turnout that might have put candidates like Jim Davis and Skip Campbell over the top. But first let’s take time to celebrate winning a Democratic majority in Congress and picking up seats in the State House for the first time in way too long. Let’s be proud of Ron Klein, Martin Kiar, and Ken Keechl for winning very tough races with enthusiasm, hard work, and the backing of a lot of great volunteers.
Winners from among the campaigns registered with BlueBroward.org included:
Congressman Kendrick Meek and Senator Bill Nelson
Ron Klein for Congress
Jeremy Ring and Ted Deutch for State Senate
Martin David Kiar and Elaine Schwartz for State House
Alex Sink For CFO
Ken Keechl for Broward County Commission
Phyllis Hope for Broward County School Board
(There were others who won without BlueBroward’s help, and congratulations to them, too, but here I’m emphasizing those who participated in our campaign and event listings).
I hope that BlueBroward.org provided some useful services to these campaigns. Feedback on what we could do better in the future is always welcome.
