JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Two Democratic candidates for Florida governor are seeking union support.

Both former Gov. Charlie Crist and former state Sen. Nan Rich are scheduled to speak at the convention of the Florida AFL-CIO on Saturday.

The union organization is scheduled to vote Sunday on which candidates to endorse in statewide races.

George Sheldon and State Rep. Perry Thurston are also scheduled to appear. The two men are running in the Democratic primary for attorney general.

Rich has pressed Crist to debate her but so far he has refused. There is a slight break scheduled in between the speeches of Rich and Crist.

The Florida Education Association has already endorsed Crist over incumbent Gov. Rick Scott.
