U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

Two dozen tea party and like-minded groups are trying to organize a rally that would take place the day before the Republican National Convention begins and feature former presidential candidates Michelle Bachmann and Herman Cain.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the conservative Unity Rally 2012 could take place in a parking lot outside Raymond James Stadium, though details are still unclear.

The Tampa Sports Authority says the group has expressed interest but there has been no contract signed yet.

In St. Petersburg, the RNC itself is holding its official welcome event at Tropicana Field on Aug. 26.

In Tampa, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, is holding a free public rally at the University of South Florida. A group of Paul supporters also is organizing a festival at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

The left-leaning Occupy Wall Street movement also is planning a presence outside of the convention.
