MIAMI BEACH, Fla., April 16 (UPI) -- Hundreds of Republican activists are plotting election strategy in south Florida and listening to pep talks from their national chairman.

The Republicans meeting at a Miami Beach, Fla., motel Thursday concentrated on what they call waffling on Iraq by Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, The Miami Herald reported Friday.

"Sen. Kerry is the one who needs to explain to the American people what exactly his policy is," said National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie at the four-day meeting.

"I am hard-pressed to tell from his public statements, which change day to day," Gillespie said.

Kerry who reportedly raised a record $6.5 million in New York Wednesday, will continue his fund-raising efforts at Palm Beach and Miami-Dade County during a campaign trip to Florida this weekend.

His wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, also will hold fundraisers in Daytona Beach, Jacksonville and Tallahassee, Fla.
