With next week’s US presidential election being decided in a few key battlegrounds, John McCain has hit the crucial state of Florida to ram his message home.
A classic swing state, Florida’s older voters could favour the Republican as could a large Jewish population still thought to be wary of Obama.
Whatever the case, McCain knows he must win the state.
“We need to win Florida. On November the 4th we’ve got to win the state of Florida my friends. And we’re going win here and we’re gonna bring real change to Washington and you can do it for me, we’ve got to bring Florida home in our victory column,’‘ he said.
Democrat Barrack Obama leads in virtually all the national polls, but the two candidates remain neck and neck in Florida which could go either way come election day.
