It’s GOP Saturday in south countyby Andrew Abramson | October 20th, 2012
BOCA RATON — The GOP is taking the most advantage today of the buzz around Monday’s Lynn debate, holding two big events in south county.
The “Get Out The Vote” Super Rally at Delray Garden Center has already begun and will run until 4 p.m. Numerous local Republican candidates are speaking, including State Attorney candidate Dina Keever and Congressional candidate Adam Hasner.
From there, Republicans are heading to the Ann Romney rally at Mizner Park. Ann Romney is expected to speak at 6:45 p.m., but guests are encouraged to arrive early, and it’s supposed to be a “who’s who” gathering of local GOP.
There are fewer organized Democratic events leading up to the date. An Obama rally is currently ongoing on the corner of Glades Road and St. Andrew’s.
On Monday, Jewish Americans for Obama is hosting Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel for a 10:30 a.m. event at Huntington Lakes clubhouse ballroom in Delray Beach.
On the Lynn campus, the university is hosting a pool-side barbeque today from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. for students and their guests. More out-of-town journalists are also beginning to arrive for the debate.
