U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the unsuccessful Republican presidential nominee in 2008, has been traveling the state by bus.
He spent about just under an hour at the Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum with more than 100 people. He spoke for a bout 15 minutes after an introduction by Adam Hasner, Republican candidate for Congress in the Broward-Palm Beach county 22nd District. He signed a portrait on the wall that had been previously signed by President George W. Bush.
McCain, a veteran who was held as a prisoner of war by the North Vietnamese, charged all the veterans there with one more mission: get out the vote for Republican Mitt Romney.
The Democratic Party had its “Gotta Vote” bus in South Florida.
At Kings Point in Tamarac, the voter filled condominium community, the star was U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.
About 100 seniors at the clubhouse came to the meet-and-greet that also featured U.S. Reps. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill, and Donna Edwards, D-Md., Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, musician and actor Fonzworth Bentley and actress Faune Chambers Watkins.
