Miami mayoral candidate to hold Tallahassee fundraiser

Money and support are rolling in for Miami mayoral candidate Francis Suarez.

On Wednesday, Suarez heads to Tallahassee for a 6 p.m. fundraising event at Clyde's and Costello's.

The host committee includes six Republican state representatives from Miami-Dade: Frank Artiles, Michael Bileca, Jose Felix Diaz, Manny Diaz Jr., Jose Oliva and Carlos Trujillo, according to the email invitation. Rep. Richard Corcoran, a Tampa Bay-area Republican who has been tapped to become speaker in 2016, is also on the committee. (Oliva is also in line to become speaker.)

Suarez, 35, is challenging incumbent Mayor Tomas Regalado in the November election. Suarez has already raised about $500,000 through his electioneering communications organization, The Future is Now. Regalado has amassed about $160,000.
