'Magic' Johnson visiting with Florida Senate members on Monday



L.A. Lakers great Earvin "Magic" Johnson will be at the Florida Capitol on Monday to promote HIV/AIDS awareness.

The Senate Democratic caucus announced Johnson will meet with Senate Democratic Leader Oscar Braynon, of Miami Gardens, and other members of the caucus at a 9 a.m. meeting.

The Naples Daily News reported this week that Johnson -- who the paper said represents a Medicaid managed-care company known as Anthem in Florida -- would also be at a "meet and greet" with Senate Republicans.

Johnson announced more than 25 years ago that he had tested positive for HIV.
