The two leading lights of the Republican primary are stumping for votes all over the Magic City today, leading to the obvious question: When is someone from the Florida gay rights movement going to glitter-bomb these guys?
We're not saying it's the right thing to do, throwing glitter all over Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, two old guys who oppose gay rights -- even though one of them has himself the ugliest set of overlapping hetero marriages and affairs this side of a Kardashian. You could also use this guide to their whereabouts around town today to give them a firm handshake or wave your favorite foam Mitt. We're just the messengers, folks.
Both Gingrich and Romney hit Miami today to tape segments for a Univision candidates forum at the station's studio in Doral, and each has scheduled other stops around town while they're in the neighborhood.
At last look, Gingrich has rocketed ahead of Romney in Florida polls, though South Florida is lukewarm at best for the two conservatives.
Here's where to find Gingrich today: At 10 a.m., he'll talk up his Latin American policy at Florida International University's Wertheim Performing Arts Center (11200 SW 8th Street.) Then he's off to Wings Plus in Broward (9880 Sample Road).
Romney, meanwhile, will try to woo Cubans with a talk on his anti-Castro credentials at the Freedom Tower at 3:15 p.m.
Rick Santorum -- the most common target of glitter-bombers, including a trio who managed to dust him with sparkles on Monday in Lady Lake -- is not hanging around Miami today.
