Harold Pryor and Dale Holness

Broward State Attorney Harold Pryor received the ice-cold shoulder treatment at an online Juneteenth celebration hosted by Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness. While the Zoom ceremony featured numerous online participants, Pryor was in the same room as Holness. After rattling off statistics for several minutes, Holness paused and said, “We have with us, State Attorney Harold Pryor.” After Pryor finished Holness simply stated “thank you State Attorney Pryor.”

Holness was much more enthusiastic in his introductions for other participants like Tamarac Commissioner Elberg Mike Gelin and Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony.

The awkward introduction comes just days after REDBROWARD broke the news that Pryor and his predecessor, Michael Satz, hosted a fundraiser for U.S. Congressional candidate Bobby DuBose. Holness is running against Dubose, Perry Thurston, Omari Hardy and Barbara Sharief for the Democratic nomination for the seat previously held by Alcee Hastings. Pryor hosted the DuBose event at the Riverside Hotel in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Political insiders were shocked by the DuBose endorsement since Holness was a strong backer of Pryor during the 2020 election.
