Florida’s presidential primary election doesn’t take place until March, but as the nation’s largest swing state, it’s never too early to begin handicapping the candidates.
That’s the attitude apparently at John Stemberger‘s Florida Family Action group. It announced Wednesday that it will host 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 to be Republican Party of Florida chairman.
The event takes place 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Venue on the Lake, also known the Maitland Civic Center, 641 S. Maitland Ave. in Maitland. Doors open at 6 p.m.
