Deutch to mingle with Dems in heart of Wexler territory

Though state Sen. Ted Deutch hasn't officially announced he is running for Congressman Robert Wexler's seat, here's a sign that he probably is: he has asked to speak to the Kings Point Democratic Club Wednesday.

That club is not in Deutch's district, but it is a key voting Democratic voting bloc for the 19th Congressional District that spans Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Marc Sultanof, president of the club, said that Deutch asked to speak. The club boasts about 800 members and the senior condo community is home to about 10,000 people -- overwhelmingly Democratic. In a special election with small turnout, a big turnout from Kings Point could tip the balance.

Deutch could not be reached for comment today.
