Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos will be in Bradenton later today to drum up support for his campaign for U.S. Senate.
Not missing a chance to draw some attention to their own cause, Democrats and others will be gathering outside of Mixon Fruit Farms, to "greet" Haridopolos as he arrives for the Tea Party Manatee event.
"We''re going to be trying our hardest to get 'Dirty Hari's' dirty agenda across, tie him to Rick Scott, and beseech Floridians from turning Florida completely 100% undeniably red," Jack Cole of Holmes Beach wrote in an email to the Bradenton Herald about the protest.
The event is set for 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Mixon Fruit Farms, 2525 27th St. E.
"This event is open to the public and will give local residents the opportunity to meet a few candidates and ask questions," the Tea Party said in a news release.
Haridopolos is seeking the Republican nomination to take on incumbent Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in the 2012 elections.
