Updated:BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. —
Former President Bill Clinton campaigned in Brevard County Friday on behalf of President Barack Obama.
Clinton spoke at the Brevard Community College campus in Palm Bay, his second visit to Central Florida this week.
“I want Barack Obama to be president, because I want America to grow together across racial, religious, and gender... and sexual orientation,” Clinton told the crowd. “I'm tired of all this fighting, these cultural wars. We need everybody.”
“I think Florida is huge, and we're going to carry this election,” said Obama supporter Abby Sabol.
“Romney's program starts off like: ‘I look like a business guy. I look like a president, I talk like president, disregard everything else I ever said you didn't like.’”
Earlier in the day, Clinton was in Lake Worth. Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney were both in Ohio
As of Thursday afternoon, 3.4 million Floridians had already cast an early or absentee vote out of roughly 11.9 million registered voters.
A current average of eight major national polls have Obama and Romney just 3 tenths of a point apart.
