(CNN) – The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee said Wednesday she expects Florida, which has yet to be called for either presidential candidate, to fall in President Barack Obama's column.
"I think later this morning, you'll see the opportunity to change that from yellow to blue. The numbers have moved in President Obama's direction," Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who's also a U.S. congresswoman from Florida, said on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien."
Obama narrowly carried the Sunshine State in 2008, beating Sen. John McCain by three percent.
(CNN) – Florida voters have defeated an initiative that would amend the state constitution and prohibit individuals and businesses from being compelled to participate in any health care system, CNN has projected.
The initiative was brought in opposition to the Affordable Care Act, the federal health care legislation also known as Obamacare. Had it passed, the result would have been mostly symbolic in the aftermath of a Supreme Court ruling earlier this year that upheld the constitutionality of the legislation.
Hollywood, Florida (CNN) – President Obama kept up his efforts on Sunday to convince voters he's the only candidate for president that voters can trust.
Addressing a crowd of more than 25,000 supporters on a high school football field here in Broward County, Obama stuck to the closing argument he's been delivering to swing-state voters for the past several days.
CNN – Florida Democrats have asked a federal judge to order an immediate extension of early voting hours, citing "unprecedented voter turnout," especially in the southern part of the state.
The lawsuit filed Sunday in Miami seeks an emergency injunction to give voters a greater opportunity to cast ballots in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties. Early voting in the state had ended Saturday.FULL STORY
(CNN) – New state polls in Ohio and Florida are divided about the state of the presidential race in these two key battlegrounds.
In Ohio, arguably the most important of the battlegrounds, a NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released Saturday showed Obama with 51% of likely voters and Romney at 45%. The CNN/ORC International Poll released Friday found the Buckeye State slightly tighter and within the sampling error: 50% for Obama to 47% for Romney.
Sarasota, Florida (CNN) - On a day that saw the return to presidential campaigning – with positive, more subdued messages amid Superstorm Sandy's aftermath – Vice President Joe Biden stood out for intensity: charging harder than usual against his Republican opponents after a widely criticized and disputed claim from the Romney campaign.
During a campaign event in Sarasota, Florida, Biden raged against a fresh Romney ad, accusing the GOP nominee of "desperation in the last hours of this campaign," "trying to scare the living devil" out of voters, and of pushing "an outrageous lie."
Miami, Fla. (CNN) – Mitt Romney resumed his normal campaign schedule but aimed to strike a "positive tone" Wednesday as people continued to recover from the aftereffects of Sandy, a senior adviser said.
But in a sign that softer tone only extended to a certain point, adviser Kevin Madden would not answer CNN National Political Correspondent Jim Acosta's question about the president's handling of the weather disaster that has upended both candidates' schedules in the final days of the race.
Sarasota, Florida (CNN) - Did Vice President Joe Biden court his first voter Wednesday for a possible 2016 presidential bid?
While he has previously hinted at a potential run, Biden smiled as he mentioned–perhaps jokingly–a White House run on the phone with a voter during a campaign stop at a Sarasota, Florida restaurant.
Tampa, Florida (CNN) - At a campaign stop kicking off a swing through Florida for Mitt Romney, the state's former governor Jeb Bush appeared to take a dig at all of the attention paid to the Obama administration's response to Superstorm Sandy.
"My experience in all this emergency response business is that it is the local level and the state level that really matters," Bush said to a crowd of supporters gathered in a Tampa airport hanger.
Tampa, Florida (CNN) - Superstorm Sandy will wash away some of the strong partisan rhetoric from the campaign trail, at least for one more day.
As President Barack Obama is surveying the damage left by the massive storm with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Mitt Romney will strike a "positive" tone during a swing through the battleground state of Florida Wednesday, a senior Romney adviser tells CNN.
