About 200 people attended the "Student Victory Rally" led by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Mitt Romney's son Craig on Friday. Student Claudia Navarro and Romney supporter Alexander Cook talked about the candidates.
Craig Romney said his campaign role is to explain what drives his father and what he is like as a person. "It's fun, because I just get to meet people all over the country and I get to tell stories about my dad. So I'm having a great time," he told NBC 6 South Florida's Jackie Nespral.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Mitt Romney's son Craig attended a rally at Florida International University in Miami Friday.
About 200 people gathered at the "Student Victory Rally" at FIU's College of Law atrium.
"My dad was a forum in Miami and a student asked him a quetion and said, 'I just graduated. I have all this debt. What are you gonna do for me?' I think she expected him to say we'll fogive your debt, give you another loan. But he said 'I'm not gonna give you any more money. That's not gonna help you. What I'm gonna do is help you find a job," Romney said.
Student Claudia Navarro said she's voting for Romney.
"I happen to be an Independent but I'm voting for Romney because I think we deserve some change in 2012. It's been four years. So, change is good," she said.
The Florida blitz came as a new Miami Herald/Tampa Bay Times poll shows Romney with a large lead over Obama, largely thanks to the GOP challenger's performance in last week's presidential debate. The poll shows Romney with a 51-44 lead over Obama in Florida, a crucial swing state in the 2012 election.
