Giuliani coming despite dispute
Sun City Center protesters fail to derail his Sunday appearance.

SUN CITY CENTER - Rudy Giuliani is coming to Sun City Center on Sunday after all, despite a last-ditch effort to derail the candidate's appearance.
Giuliani will appear at 10 a.m. at the area's community hall, 1910 S Pebble Beach Boulevard. The event is open to the public, but doors will close when the hall reaches its 800-seat capacity.
At an emergency meeting on Friday, dissenting board members of the Greater Sun City Civic Association argued that renting the hall for a political rally would jeopardize the association's tax-exempt status. That effort failed, 5-3.
"This has always been our right," said Janet Wilson, who rented the hall as a private individual. "Democrats are not happy, but they are invited to come."
The Republican hopeful has packed his schedule tightly on Sunday, with a live interview in Ybor City's Columbia Restaurant by George Stephanopoulos at 9 a.m. At noon, Giuliani travels Spartan Manor in New Port Richey, then heads to Polk City and other spots along Interstate 4.
