The presidential candidates dig for votes in the Sunshine State

Who’s going to be The Next President? Whoever it is, he or she will have to spend a lot of time in Florida in order to win. Wayne Garcia continues his “Next President” series with a look at Rudy Giuliani, the Republican front-runner and cigar aficionado, something that has not gone unnoticed in Ybor. (Read Wayne’s report on Hillary Clinton and her Tampa Bay supporters here.)
Also, America’s Latino community got a chance to give the Democratic presidential wannabes a once-over in Orlando last weekend. Wayne attended the forum to find out the answer to such eternal questions as, Who’s got the Latino vote? Who speaks the best Spanish? And… ¿Quién es más macho? (It’s a safe bet that the answer to the second question is not Dennis Kucinich.)

PLUS: This week another election kicks off. It’s time to vote in the 2007 Best of the Bay Readers’ Poll. Find your ballot here.
