PLENTY OF PRESIDENTIAL WANNABEE NEWS ACROSS FLORIDA TODAY
Sorry we missed out on a couple of events that occured today which apparantly we didn't find out about until it was too late.
In Winter Park, the presidential campaign of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani opened it's Florida headquarters today. Leading the celebration was the candidate's national campaign manager, Mike DuHaime, who touted the importance of Florida to the St. Petersburg Times political blog The Buzz:
"Clearly it is among the first four states, it's where we're the strongest and it's the closest to Feb. 5 where you could have potentially 20 states (voting).'
Buzz writer and Times political editor Adam C. Smith also reports that only a few miles away from the Giuliani HQ opening, Republican presidential rival Mitt Romney was holding one of his occasional "Ask Mitt Anything" events. He also has a privite fundraising event planned this evening in Orlando.
And on top of that, Republican Party of Florida communications director Jeff Sadosky is stepping aside to fill a similar post for the Sunshine State team of actor and former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson's exploratory committee.
