29. Found the verification that Rahm and Karen Thurman went there for talks.
I think the PBP link may be dead, but I found this at MyDD from 2005. I had posted it also, but can't find it.

"HomeDiariesBreaking BlueE-Wire 2008Pickup opportunity in FL-16?
by Quaoar, Sun Aug 14, 2005 at 08:35:10 PM EST

Looks like Florida Democrats are recruiting an interesting candidate to take on Rep. Mark Foley -- a former Republican, vFinance Inc. Chairman Tim Mahoney, who switched parties a month ago.

Details below.

The last few Democratic attempts to unseat U.S. Rep. Mark Foley, R-Jupiter, have been spectacular failures, but some Dems in Washington and Tallahassee still dream of finding a credible challenger.
New Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Karen Thurman and folks at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in D.C. have had serious talks recently with vFinance Inc. Chairman Tim Mahoney, whose business finances high-growth companies and has more than two dozen offices in the United States.

Mahoney, 48, has homes in Palm Beach Gardens and Highlands County, where he has a 100-acre cattle ranch on Fisheating Creek. He hasn't been politically active and only became a Democrat last month, when he switched his registration from the GOP. But Democratic recruiters like his combination of business and agricultural backgrounds.

Oops, how'd that work out?
