Better funding beat a longer history in Broward County politics as Robert McKinzie won a seat on the Broward County Commission, outpolling former Rep. Bobby DuBose who recruited McKinzie to take his seat on the Fort Lauderdale City Commission in 2014.
McKinzie, who recently left the City Commission, won 47% of the vote, beating DuBose who drew 40%. Aude Sicard, a community organizer, came in third at 13%.
McKinzie and DuBose had been friends. In 2014, when DuBose was elected to the Legislature, he convinced McKinzie, a three-time County Commission candidate, to run for the City Commission seat DuBose was vacating.
