Florida’s presidential primary election doesn’t take place until next March, but as the nation’s largest swing-state, it’s never too early to begin handicapping the candidates.
That’s the attitude apparently being employed by John Stemberger’s Florida Family Action group, which announced today that it will be hosting an analysis/straw poll of the GOP candidates next week in Maitland.
Among the panelists discussing the candidates will be Umatilla Republican state Sen. Alan Hays, national Tea Party leader Karin Hoffman from Fort Lauderdale, and Kurt Kelly, a former GOP state representative who lost out to Blaise Ingoglia in the race to become the current Republican Party of Florida chairman.
The event takes place next Tuesday, May 19, from 7-9 p.m. at Venue on the Lake, also known the Maitland Civic Center. That’s at 641 S. Maitland Ave in Maitland. Doors open at 6 p.m.
