Carey Baker to raise cash in Tampa



U.S. Rep. Adam Putnam, the featured speaker at the Hillsborough GOP's Lincoln Day Dinner on Friday, isn't the only candidate in the 2010 race for Florida's commissioner of agriculture and consumer services scheduled to be in Tampa this week.

Florida Sen. Carey Baker, a Republican from Eustis who's also running for the post, will be at Rigatoni's on Kennedy Boulevard on Thursday for a fundraiser that begins at 5:30 p.m. Rigatoni's is owned by Rick Barcena, who made his first foray into politics in 2007 with a failed bid for the Tampa City Council.
