Herman Cain will campaign in Florida next week



Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain plans some extensive retail politicking in Florida next week next week in advance of the Presidency 5 debate and straw poll next week in Orlando. He'll campaign by bus in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Manatee, Charlotte and Polk counties.


The former Godfather's Pizza executive will appear at Mixon Fruit Farms in Bradenton from noon to 2 p.m. on Monday at a rally hosted by Tea Party Manatee (do tea and pizza go together?) At 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Cain will be at the Charlotte County Cultural Center for a campaign event hosted by the Republican parties of Sarasota and Desoto counties, Republican Club of South Sarasota County, Nokomis, Osprey & Venice Are Republican Club, Taking Back Our Country (Englewood), Venice 9/12 Group and Punta Gorda Tea Party.

Later Monday, Cain will speak to the Belleair Women's Republican Club in Pinellas. On Tuesday he speaks at a Hillsborough County GOP breakfast, visits party headquarters and will headline a Polk County Republican Party dinner in Lakeland that night.
