TAMPA, Fla. - The budding rivalry of Republican presidential contenders Rick Perry and Mitt Romney takes the spotlight on Monday when the party's White House hopefuls meet in Florida for their second debate in less than a week.

The debate, co-sponsored by the Tea Party Express, will include questions from members of the conservative Tea Party movement that has reshaped the US political scene with its focus on limited government and reduced spending.

It will focus heavily on the economy and is likely to feature more fireworks between Perry and Romney, who had several sharp exchanges last week over the future of the Social Security retirement plan and job creation.

Perry has zoomed past Romney, the former front-runner, in opinion polls in the last month after entering the race for the Republican nomination to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012.
