Democrat Scott Israel criticizes Republican Sheriff Al Lamberti for hiring an all-white transition team.
Lamberti criticizes Israel for his internal affairs record.
What's on voters' minds?
Neither topic, according to a very unscientific string of conversations with voters at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center in Fort Lauderdale today.
Voters who chose Lamberti say he's effectively led BSO since Ken Jenne stepped down last year.
"He's been doing a good job so why change a thing?'' said J.L. Gibbs, a Democrat.
Many voters like Israel because of his party affiliation.
"I just picked him because he is a Democrat,'' said voterJoseph Williams.
Israel is getting a boost from being linked to Barack Obama. Several voters at the African-American library arrived to vote holding a flier from Broward4Obama.com that lists Israel's name as a recommended candidate.
