Sarasota is magnet for presidential contenders



County GOP chairs in Florida could take a lesson from Sarasota Republican Chairman Joe Gruters. Correct us if we're wrong, but outside of fundraising stops (where Miami-Dade probably dominates) it seems no county in Florida has had more presidential campaign visits than Sarasota this cycle - everybody but Rick Perry and Ron Paul.

Coming up: Newt Gingrich is scheduled to hold a rally Jan. 24 at Dolphin Aviation at 1:45 p.m., while also attending a couple fundraiser. On Jan. 29, Rick Santorum is scheduled to hold a 2 p.m. rally in Sarasota.
