Acting Broward Democratic Chair Cynthia Busch lost her campaign to be a delegate at the party’s national convention earlier this month.
Busch may still end up at the convention because of her role as the temporary leader of Florida’s biggest Democratic organization. But her defeat in a tiny delegate race indicates a lack of political skills, some party insiders say.
Even before losing her race, Busch’s campaign was controversial. That’s because she ran as a Bernie Sanders delegate while Broward Democrats overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton in the primary.
Maybe it was fitting then that Busch was beaten by activist Hillary Keyes in Congressional District 22.
Picking Sanders. Then losing an election for delegate.
A lack of political skills? You can answer that one.
What does Busch’s stumble mean for future party prospects?
