 By Buddy Nevins,, for, Sept. 12, 2015 – Broward Democrats held their first fundraiser Thursday since Acting Chair Cynthia Busch took over, targeted on starting an effective Get Out The Vote.

It was a respectable start.

As with most political receptions, the Fort Lauderdale event was dominated by candidates running for office and their supporters. Few deep-pocketed Democrats showed.

That shouldn’t matter. The goal here was to illustrate that there will be a new, pro-active effort in 2016 to raise the abysmal turnout of Democrats in Broward.

Busch also went out of her way to embrace the new generation of Democrats.  The event was put together by Busch and Seth Platt, two of the younger activists in Broward.
