Republican presidential candidates Chris Christie and Rand Paul will participate in Florida’s upcoming Sunshine Summit.
“As our list of participating candidates continues to grow, we are excited to welcome Gov. Christie and Sen. Paul to the Sunshine Summit in Orlando,” Florida GOP Chairman Blaise Ingoglia announced Monday. “With eight candidates announced to attend, and more to come, the Sunshine Summit is turning out to be the can’t-miss event of the primary election.”
Participation in the event qualifies candidates to appear on the ballot for Florida’s March 15 Republican primary, therefore quelling the rumors that either candidate might soon be exiting the race. (RELATED: Super PAC Pulls Plug On Paul’s Presidential Push)
