Romney speaks to thousands in Sanford on eve of election



SANFORD, Fla. - With just one day left before Election Day, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was in Sanford to convince voters to get out to the polls.

Romney spoke Monday morning at the Orlando Sanford Airport, with his plane parked just feet away, ready to dash to another speech having already spent the weekend tirelessly campaigning.

"I want to reach across the street to the neighbor who has the other sign in his front yard, and I'm going to reach across the aisle in Washington, D.C., to the politicians who are working for the other candidate," said Romney.

Many of Romney's supporters had plenty of confidence in Tuesday’s election.

“Mitt Romney all the way,” said supporter Linda Gadd. “It’s going to be a blowout.”

As the event wound down, Romney shook hands and held babies while supporters expressed a variety of reasons they're on Romney's side.

“I am totally against Obama-care,” said Romney supporter Sandy Stewart.

“We need protection, especially from a nuclear Iran,” said supporter Angel Davila.

Romney holds a slim lead in Florida polls and almost surely needs Florida's 29 electoral votes to win the White House.

GOP officials familiar with the plan said Romney may make a final visit to Ohio, where 18 electoral votes are up for grabs.

On Tuesday, he plans to campaign in Pennsylvania.
