Mitch Ceasar has returned the Broward Democratic Party, party officials confirmed Thursday.
Ceasar, a longtime Democratic Party boss, finished second in the party’s primary election for Clerk of the Courts, collecting 34,966 votes (30 percent.)
Brenda Forman won the election with 50,866 votes (44 percent) with public defender Elizabeth McHugh finishing in third place with 30,334 votes (26 percent). Forman is the wife of current Broward Clerk of the Courts Howard C. Forman.
“I’m looking forward to a new chapter of my career,” Ceasar told SFGN on Wednesday evening as he attended a reception for U.S. Senator Bill Nelson in Plantation.
A practicing attorney in Broward County for more than 36 years, Ceasar’s return to the Democratic Party’s apparatus was welcomed.
“We have regained a passionate voice for democratic ideals, and I look forward to working with Mitch in the coming months,” said Broward Democratic Party interim chair Cynthia Busch, in a news release.
