Buckhorn makes an endorsement in Tampa mayoral runoff

On Wednesday, Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn (D) endorsed former police chief Jane Castor over philanthropist David Straz in the city’s April 23 mayoral runoff election. The two candidates advanced from a field of seven on March 5, with Castor leading Straz 48-15.
Buckhorn is term-limited and unable to run for re-election. Both Castor and Straz are registered Democrats, meaning partisan control of the city won’t change based on the result of the runoff.
