June 12th in Orlando will have an August atmosphere tomorrow.
We’ve got GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney making the first of two visits to the I4 corridor in as many weeks tomorrow, and two bitter rivals debating in what has become one of the most heated congressional primaries in the country.
Romney will be at Con-Air (Democrats insert joke here) tomorrow activating what will be his most important group of supporters in the country. The electoral math becomes very difficult for the former Massachusetts Governor if he can’t carry Florida. Expect many of the faces you’ll see in the crowd at tomorrow’s rally to be out knocking on doors and making phone calls for him later in the year.
Also today, it was announced that Vice-President Joe Biden will be in Orlando Friday attending a Mayor’s conference continuing what his been a baseball like rotation with the President and First lady through Florida
Both Romney and President Obama are expected to return to Orlando next week to attend the NALEO conference near the attractions.
You can catch Romney’s speech live with my analysis on CF News 13 when it happens.
Attendees of the rally will have to hustle downtown to catch what could be the debate of the year. Sitting House Representatives John Mica and Sandy Adams will debate in the company of Orlando’s powerful at the Tiger Bay Club. Redistricting has forced these two to face off for the 7th Congressional district here in Central Florida and the back and forth between the two has slowly escalated. We’ll see if tomorrow’s contest will convince some of the whale donors that will be in attendance to get off of the sidelines and write a few checks. Mica has held a lead in the polling that has been released till this point.
I am neither powerful nor a whale donor so I cannot attend. Perhaps there will be a fence with a hole in it, somewhere at the venue I can look through.
The big events are starting to roll in and it’s starting to feel like campaign season. Game on!
