"Tampa Bay is the largest swing region of the biggest swing state in the nation; Republican's votes will count in our straw poll just like they will count on Primary Day. Presidential candidates will be able to gauge their strength in Florida through the results of this straw poll," said Pasco County Chairman Bill Bunting.
"Have Your Say in Tampa Bay is a great example of how united the Republican's in Tampa Bay are right now. We are committed to a Republican victory in 2008. I'm looking forward to counting the votes," said Hillsborough County Chairman David Storck
