Session over, Haridopolos turns to Senate race

The 2011 legislative session over, Mike Haridopolos has quickly refocused on his U.S. Senate campaign.

Yesterday, Haridopolos got some media face time at a bill signing in Fort Myers and then appeared at the Naples Board of Realtors and Collier Republican Club. Tomorrow, he will give a speech in Clewiston for the 61st anniversary of the Florida Federation of Republican Women. He's expecting a "national level" endorsement sometime this week.

Next week, "he'll be all over the state," campaign manager Tim Baker said.

Republican primary opponents George LeMieux and Adam Hasner have continued to travel the state, trying to get in front of as many GOP groups as possible and raise money.
