“...Koch is determined. She takes attendance at party meetings. She’s raising money online, training volunteers to register voters, and phone banking for next week’s closely watched mayoral race in Jacksonville. In an email for Democratic donations, she called her county “the home of the nation’s most notorious sexual abuser…”
