Revise that McCain Fl team



Woops. One of the Republican activists listed by the McCain campaign as part of the Arizona senator's central Florida campaign team isn't quite sold on him yet.

"They kind of jumped the gun on that. I haven't endorsed anybody yet,''  Julius Melendez told the Buzz. "I attended an event he did and liked what he had to say, but I want to get more information from all the candidates."

Melendez is working on the state House campaign of Tony Suarez, who was also surprised to see his name included as part of the McCain campaign team. But Suarez says he did tell Orange County GOP chairman Lew Oliver he backed McCain. "But I don't know anything about any committee. I'm worried about my own campaign now,'' Suarez said.
