Obama Campaign: Florida Key To Victory

September 26th, 2008 by flanews

Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama is spending extra time and money in Florida. Michelle Obama and Jill Biden will be in Tallahassee Saturday. Obama spent the week in Tampa preparing for tonight’s presidential debate. The Obama camp has budgeted 39 million dollars to spend on television ads and registration drives in the state. North Florida Communications Director Kevin Cate said If Obama wins Florida, he wins the White House.

“Florida’s incredible important. There are 27 electoral votes in this state. If we win Florida we win the whole thing. Polls are showing that we’re doing well. We aren’t focused on those polls. What we are focused on is registering as many voters as possible for October 6th and turning them out on Election Day like Florida’s never seen before,” Cate said.

Republican Nominee John McCain isn’t ignoring Florida. A bus load of war heroes, some of which served with McCain, traveled the state this week.
