How many Florida fundraisers can Hillary do in one day?

The answer: five -- plus a speech to 1,000 Hispanic elected officials.

Saturday is the last day of the three-month fundraising period for presidential candidates, who have to disclose their totals two weeks later. The homestretch tests the mettle of even the most energetic contenders.

Frontrunning Democrat Hillary Clinton has a whirlwind Saturday planned: She starts off the day at a "women's breakfast" fundraiser at Parrot Jungle Island. Then she heads to Orlando to attend another reception and give a speech to the National Association of Latino Elected Officials. Then she jets back to South Florida for three more fundraisers before midnight at the homes of attorney Stuart Ratzan, businessman F.J. Pollak and developer Jorge Perez.
