Three members of the Florida House -- two of them seeking U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV’s job in Washington -- are guests on this week’s "Naples Daily NewsMakers with Jeff Lytle’’ program airing Sunday morning at 10 on ABC7. Gary Aubuchon of Cape Coral and Paige Kreegel of Punta Gorda explain what sets them apart in a crowded District 19 GOP field, and Matt Hudson, R-Naples, sizes up Gov. Rick Scott’s job performance and re-election chances.

Lytle: What is going to set you apart from the other candidates?
Gary: I have led in my community. I’ve led in business (real estate sales and homebuilding). I started a business in the living room and dining room of my home and grew it to a present-day enterprise that employs 100 people directly and hundreds indirectly.
I have led in the community in various levels and I’ve led in the Florida Legislature, and so that leadership experience is the distinction between myself and the other candidates.
