Online message boards and email lists are buzzing with tea party organizers promoting a statewide convention this fall in Daytona Beach.

Some organizers are saying they expect to draw more than 100 like-minded groups from around the state to the Volusia County Ocean Center during the first week of November.

The event’s website lists state Attorney General Pam Bondi as a featured speaker. A spokeswoman for Bondi said she’s interested in attending, but can’t confirm this far ahead of time.

Also listed among those expected to appear: sheriff-turned-gun-rights-advocate Richard Mack, conspiracy theorist and Federal Reserve critic G. Edward Griffin, anti-Islamic author Bill Warner and political comic Stephen Kruiser.
