Tea partiers and a Republican political action committee say they will descend on South Florida Water Management District headquarters today to protest the agency’s purchase of U.S. Sugar property for Everglades restoration.
“We want to end the bailout,” said Daniel Diaz, director of the Republican Majority Campaign PAC, based in Pompano Beach.
