Ryan Benk is catching up with Jacksonville’s local Democratic Party.
First, visiting the official Democratic watch party at San Marco’s Cuba Libre Latin club, Benk will touch base with local Democratic politicians and operatives who are optimistic they’ll see a Hillary Clinton victory.
Later, Benk will meet up with local young Democrats, many of whom supported the presidential candidacy of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, at the Bay Street Grill in downtown. Many of these young voters are still skeptical of a Hillary Clinton presidency, although recent polls show many chose to throw their weight behind the Democratic Party nominee in hopes of stopping Republican rival Donald Trump.
Duval Democratic spokesman James Poindexter said he can't confirm which candidates or politicians will attend each party.
