Ann Romney said that her husband is prepared for the second debate. The president hoped to seize momentum from his GOP and rebound from a lackluster performance in the first face-off in Denver, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed confidence in him. Meantime, Lynn University President Kevin Ross and his school are gearing up to host the final debate next Monday in Boca Raton. "We're a little more excited for the next one," Ross said.
President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will go toe-to-toe Monday night in their third and final debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton.
The 90-minute debate will focus on foreign policy and gives the candidates their last opportunity to spar before the Nov. 6 election with more than 60 million Americans tuned in.
It's perhaps fitting that the final debate showdown is set in Florida, a crucial swing state in the election.
So far, more than 748,000 Floridians have cast absentee ballots, according to the state Supervisor of Elections.
A CNN poll released Friday showed a statistical tie in Florida, with Romney at 49 percent and Obama with 48 percent. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows each candidate favored by 47 percent of likely voters. Early voting in Florida begins next weekend.
Both candidates are getting plenty of help as they prepare for the Lynn debate. On Saturday, Mitt's wife Ann Romney visited a Fort Lauderdale Cuban restaurant to greet volunteers and supporters.
On Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama will be speaking at Broward College.
As for Lynn, the university has been preparing for the debate for months. School officials say the cost of hosting the debate is about $4.9 million.
The debate begins at 9 p.m. and can be viewed on NBC 6 South Florida and NBC6.com.
