'Major announcement' by Brown-Waite raises questions



Ginny UPDATE Friday: Continued silence from GBW camp. Aides insist they know nothing. The national GOP is in the dark, too. One possibility making the rounds: She's getting married.

U.S. Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite will make a "major announcement" tomorrow at the Citrus County Lincoln Day Dinner.

In a short and cryptic statement, the Brooksville Republican said she would do so "amongst family, friends, longtime supporters and party faithfuls."

Her aides said they did not know what the announcement would be, including how it factors in her re-election bid. Brown-Waite was elected in 2002, taking the 5th Congressional District seat from Democrat Karen Thurman.
