Bittel Touts Hillsborough Support

With Florida Democrats slated to pick a new chair Saturday, candidate Stephen Bittel on Wednesday said he had received support from the Hillsborough County Democratic Executive Committee’s Steering Committee.

Bittel, a major party fundraiser from Coral Gables, also received an endorsement Tuesday from U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. Five candidates are seeking to replace party Chairwoman Allison Tant, who decided against seeking another term.
