Buckhorn: RNC is Tampa’s coming out party

Posted Jul 10, 2012 by Kevin Wiatrowski

Mayor Bob Buckhorn was featured Tuesday in a half-hour interview with Politico, a politics-based Website based in Washington, D.C.
The interview, which is here, was conducted by Politico’s chief White House correspondent Mike Allen.
It covered a lot of ground, from Buckhorn’s position as a Democrat hosting the Republican National Convention, to culture roots of Ybor City’s “La Septima/La Setima” sign debate.
But mostly the interview gave Buckhorn a chance to sell Tampa to a national audience as a place to visit and to invest.
“When this is said and done, the world will have a new view of Tampa, Florida,” Buckhorn told Allen. “It’s our coming-out party.”
