McCain to address Tampa supporters on national security



TAMPA -- Presidential candidate John McCain arrived in Tampa about 12:45 p.m. today with an entourage that included Gov. Charlie Crist and Sens. Joe Lieberman, Lindsey Graham and Mel Martinez.

A motorcade drove them to the University of Tampa where McCain is participating in a national security roundtable. When that event is finished, he'll address about 150 supporters on national security issues.

Included in the crowd were St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker, Republican businessman and fundraiser Al Austin, Hillsborough County Commissioner Brian Blair, former state Rep. Sandy Murman, current state Rep. Kevin Ambler and Tampa City Council member Joe Caetano.
