High partisan stakes in Bogdanoff-Sachs Senate raceby George Bennett | May 21st, 2012
Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith and incoming Senate Democratic Leader Chris Smith plan to attend Sachs’ campaign kickoff event tonight at the South County Civic Center west of Delray Beach.
Atwater used to represent a coastal Palm Beach-Broward Senate district that leaned Republican. But the new district where Bogdanoff and Sachs are running has a Democratic advantage.
Democrats have successfully cleared the field for Sachs, with former Rep. Kevin Rader dropping a Sachs primary challenge and running in another district instead. Bogdanoff, meanwhile, faces a challenge from the right by Mike Lameyer in the GOP primary.
