Haridopolos, Nelson raising campaign cash Friday

The man he's trying to knock off, incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, is getting some big help -- from President Barack Obama, who will be in Miami on Friday as well. That event is being held at developer Michael Adler's home.

Obama will also raise money for U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Meantime, the Buzz is another possible Republican candidate, George LeMieux, has been trying to line up fundraising commitments, so when he enters the race he'll have a decent pile.
