Tom Gallagher's bus tour took off Thursday morning, using a black bus from the same company used by Charlie Crist, Buzz believes. Gallagher's logo on the bus wrap: "Defending Families, Leading with Experience, and Expanding Opportunity for All. Keep Florida in the Right Lane!" The bus' name: Roosevelt. (That's Theodore, not FDR, campaign spokesman Alberto Martinez assured us.)

Thursday's agenda: breakfast at Fred's Market in Plant City, a meet and greet at Sun City Center, a tour of Riverview faith-based prison, a Lakeland senior citizen center, a get out the vote event in Sebring, and visit to Gallagher's hq in Indian River.

There's also a soundtrack for the tour, provided to reporters on a CD: Tunes from the Trail. Selections cleary chosen in part for their titles. Example: Don't Stop Believin' by Journey. And a Buzz favorite from Willie Nelson: On the Road Again.
