Hispanic GOPers gather in Lakeland



Here's the release: "This Saturday, August 18, 2007, the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of Florida gathers for their annual Black Tie Presidential Gala, where the diversity of the Republican Party is celebrated by Republican leaders from all over the nation.   The Lakeland Yacht and Country Club will be the location for this spectacular event.  It will feature Keynote Speakers Marco Rubio, the Florida Speaker of the House and Jim Greer, the Republican Party of Florida Chairman."

Is there a lot of yachting in Lakeland?

"Some of the expected guests include Congressman Adam Putnam, State Representatives Dennis Ross and Seth McKeel, Osceola County Commissioner  Osceola John Quinones, Chairman of the California Republican National Hispanic Assembly Jim Lopez, noted Republican author and historian Michael Zak of Washington,  D.C. and Craig Romney, the son of presidential candidate Governor Mitt Romney.
