A Battle Royal in Poinciana?
Republicans Charlie Crist and Tom Gallagher will face off Tuesday night in the Polk County community of Poinciana in a forum sponsored by the Polk and Osceola RECs. It should be fun to watch: This is the first time in more than a month that the two GOP candidates have met on the same stage (the last time was a Leadership Florida event in Orlando on June 24).
The forum, from 7-8:15 p.m., is at the Association of Poinciana Villages Community Center, and will be televised live on Bay News 9 in the Tampa Bay area. If Gallagher is going to change the nature of the campaign from a discussion of his ethics and low poll numbers to Crist's views on such issues as gay adoption and stem cell research, then the place to start would be tonight in Poinciana.
