Politics and pancakes

Politicians seeking high office in Florida are bringing their campaigns to East Manatee.

Recently, Marco Rubio, former Florida House speaker who is vying with Gov. Charlie Crist for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, campaigned at the East Manatee Republican Club meeting at the Peridia Country Club.

Republican Bill McCollum, Florida's attorney general who is seeking to replace Crist as governor, will be at the Country Pancake House, 8205 Natures Way, Lakewood Ranch, 7:30-8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 1, at $50 a plate.

Billed as Breakfast With Bill, the event is being hosted by County Commissioner Donna Hayes with John and Pat Colon, David Garofalo, Kathy King, Jamie Miller, Don O'Nesky and Eric Robinson.

Others seeking to replace Crist are State Senator Paula Dockery, R-Lakeland, and Democrat Alex Sink, chief financial officer for the state of Florida.
