Texas Gov. and Republican presidential frontrunner Rick Perry has a series of Florida money events lined up to coincide with a pair of Republican presidential debates in the state, according to a “Sunshine State Kickoff” invitation making the rounds.


He’ll be in Tampa on Monday with other GOP White House hopefuls for a CNN/Tea Party Express debate.

Then come a series of five $1,000-a-head fundraisers with $2,500 VIP receptions that include photo ops with Perry. The still-forming host committee for the events includes House Speaker Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park, and former Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp. Palm Beach Countians on Perry’s finance team include Palm Beach Town Councilman Bill Diamond (formerly a Michele Bachmann, Donald Trump and Rudy Giulianisupporter).

On Tuesday, Sept. 13, Perry will attend a fundraising breakfast in Tampa and lunch in Miami.

The following week, Perry will attend a $1,000-a-plate lunch on Sept. 21 in Fort Lauderdale followed by an evening money event at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach first reported Saturday.

On Sept. 22, Perry and other Republican candidates participate in another nationally televised debate, this one from Orlando as party of the Republican Party of Florida Presidency 5 event.

Perry also has an evening fundraiser scheduled for Sept. 23 in Orlando.
