Candidates Make Final Push on Last Day of Early Voting

It was a busy day in politics as candidates from both parties campaigned across South Florida asking people for their votes.

The final day of early voting meant a final push from candidates to get out and vote.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist appeared with Vice President Joe Biden Sunday morning in southwest Miami-Dade. Biden spoke at length about the importance of the Hispanic vote.

"This will be the election, if the community stands up, where we start to say the outcome of every future election in America will be fundamentally impacted upon by the Hispanic community," Biden said.

Congressman Joe Garcia also joined forces with Crist and lieutenant governor candidate Annette Taddeo for the rally.

"I fight for what's important," Garcia said. "I'm certainly not going to let a bunch of outsiders come into our state with their billions of dollars and run rough shot over South Floridians."

In Kendall, Garcia's opponent Carlos Curbelo said he's proposing a new beginning.

"I'm proposing a number of government reforms such as tax reform, education reform," Curbelo said. "That'll really help get our economy growing again."

Curbelo's fellow Republicans were also out in full force in Hialeah. Jeb Bush, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen campaigned for Carlos Lopez-Cantera and Rick Scott.

"We need to get re-elected because we care about your family," Scott told the crowd. "About your opportunity to live the dream of America."

In Liberty City, parishoners, labor union members, and activists also held a massive get-out-the vote effort, encouraging African-Americans to excercise their right early.
