Former Fort Lauderdale mayor heads Democrats for Hasner groupby George Bennett | September 11th, 2012
In a district where Democrats hold an 40.8-to-32.3 percent registration advantage and Barack Obama won by 14 points in 2008, Republican congressional candidate Adam Hasner is seeking to bolster his crossover appeal against Democrat Lois Frankel.
Hasner, the former state House majority leader from Boca Raton, has trotted out a list of 22 “Democrats for Adam” who all live in Palm Beach-Broward District 22. The team includes former Fort Lauderdale mayor Jim Naugle (a frequent endorser of Republicans) and former Delray Beach city commissioner Gary Eliopoulos.
Two former Democratic state House candidates — Charna Lazar and Bobra Bush of Boca Raton — are also on the list.
