VOTE RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT 2012 FLORIDA STRAW POLL
In the first leg of a political trifecta, Florida Republicans will conduct a straw poll that could determine the 2012 presidential race.
Some 3,500 state delegates will convene for "Presidency 5" in Orlando to hear the crowded field of GOP contenders debate and to cast the nation’s first significant straw ballots Sept. 22-24.
Hosted by the Republican Party of Florida, the previous four Presidency summits have set the tone for GOP presidential campaigns.
This year’s "P5" comes with particularly high stakes, as the Republican field is both large and amorphous, with no clear front-runner.
And the event prepares the stage for two more big events in Florida: the state’s presidential primary and the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
"The P5 straw poll, early primary and convention could be the trifecta for Florida’s Republican voters signifying its importance as the most coveted Republican purple state in the country," said Brett Doster, a Tallahassee-based political consultant. Rest of Story here
