A half hour before the Lee County candidate forum began, there were empty tables and only a handful of people setting up in a conference room at Mercola Market in Cape Coral. 

By 6 p.m., the forum, sponsored by 92.5 Fox “Right All Along” radio, had reached a critical mass, with 30-some candidates for political office gathered, and a wall-to-wall crowd of potential voters, looking to learn about their campaign platforms and what they hoped to accomplish in office. 

Some candidates did not show up. But the ones who did had plenty to say about their aspirations for running for office. Cape Coral City Council candidates led the way in terms of attendance, with at least 11 candidates on hand.
