Republican Domino to Democrat Sachs: Thanks (?) for the kudosby George Bennett | June 4th, 2010
With Gov. Charlie Crist making a late cancellation to attend an oil spill powwow in Louisiana with President Obama, state Reps. Carl Domino, R-Jupiter, and Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, filled in as speakers at today’s Forum Club of the Palm Beaches lunch.
Responding to an audience question about partisan rancor, Sachs said Domino “has really become the most bipartisan Republican in the Florida House.”
Working with the other party isn’t necessarily seen as a virtue in a competitive partisan primary like the one Domino faces against state Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauderdale, for a state Senate seat.
“In this political atmosphere, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing,” Domino said of Sachs’ remark. “I’ll take it as a good thing.”
