A Rundown of This Week's Democratic Conquest of Florida
The Democrats aren't going to let Florida slip away from them this time. The Sunshine state hasn't shone blue since we voted to give Bill Clinton a second term (except for that one time where we probably voted for Al Gore, but you know, that's history, sadly), and with the polls showing the state tilting towards Obama and early voting kicking off Today, they're not going to lose it again.
Dark Queen of the Left Hillary Clinton is in Ft. Lauderdale right! now!, but she's traveling up to Orlando soon to meet her favorite frenemie Obama in Orlando for a super rally at 6pm.
Barack himself was in Tampa earlier where he was introduced by Tampa Bay Rays rookie pitcher David Price, fresh off his team's World Series birth.
Tomorrow, Barack will be in Lake Worth on the campus of Palm Beach Community College at 10:30am (doors at 9).
Michelle Obama hits up the Pensacola Civic Center on Tuesday, at 11:45am.
Then tomorrow afternoon Barack comes back to Miami with Michelle in tow at Bicentennial Park (1075 Biscayne Blvd.). Doors opes at 3:45, and the program starts at 5:45. "The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required, but an RSVP is strongly encouraged. Space is limited, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For security reasons, do not bring bags and please limit personal items. No signs or banners permitted. Public parking is limited.

Riptide and our brethren at the Broward New Times will have coverage of Obama's South Florida events tomorrow, so check back for that.
