The Florida Legislature won't convene for another five weeks to consider a bill moving up the state's presidential primary, but Republican contender Sam Brownback is already calling Florida an "early primary state."
Browback, a U.S. senator from Kansas, is traveling the well-traveled presidential routes this week to Iowa and South Carolina. But he is also going to Michigan and Florida, which are among a handful of large states considering earlier primaries. A bill filed last week would move Florida's vote from the second Tuesday in March to the last Tuesday in January.
Brownback will be in Naples on Saturday.
