Surprise guests at Miami-Dade Dem meeting: elected officials

Last night's meeting of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party was unusual. Elected officials showed up.

Among the more than two dozen pols: State Reps. Luis Garcia and Yolly Roberson, North Miami Vice Mayor Jacques Despinosse, South Miami Mayor Horace Feliu, Miami Lakes Councilman Richard Pulido, Palmetto Bay Vice Mayor Linda Robinson, North Miami Bay Village Mayor Joe Geller and Miami Beach Commissioner Richard Steinberg.

Steinberg is running for the Florida House seat to be vacated by Dan Gelber in 2008. Geller is thinking about it.
