As it stands, Z.J. Hafeez, a Democratic candidate for the Florida House seat now held by Ron Reagan, R-Bradenton, won't face competition until the general election this November.
But as he waits on the outcome of the four-way race for the Republican nomination, the Apollo Beach lawyer is busy making himself known to voters in Manatee County.
On Sunday, his campaign will be the beneficiary of a fund-raising brunch at the Preserve Golf Club, 7310 Tara Preserve Lane in East Manatee. For details, contact Renee Walker at email@example.com or (813) 793-7428.
The brunch will be the first of several planned appearances for Hafeez in Manatee. In an e-mail, Hafeez said he will be speaking to Democratic clubs in Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key and southeast Manatee.
The four Republicans running for the District 67 seat are Jeremiah Guccione, Robert McCann, Marie Nisco and Greg Steube.
Reagan cannot run again because of term-limits.
