Presidential surrogates blanket South Florida for get-out-the-vote events


Monday, the final full day of campaigning for the 2012 presidential campaign, brings a flurry of surrogates stumping in South Florida for President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

Romney will join the Romney-Ryan Real Recovery Road Rally in Sanford on Monday afternoon.

Obama, who was in Hollywood on Sunday, won’t be in Florida on Monday. But his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, will be in Orlando.

Here’s a scorecard:

•  Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will be outside of the Miami-Dade Supervisor of Elections office in Doral with the Obama campaign to “encourage local residents to Vote Now!” at 9:30 a.m.

•  Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day will be in Pompano Beach at 11:30 a.m. for a Get-Out-The-Vote event.

•  Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former Gov. Jeb Bush are scheduled to attend a Get-Out-The-Vote Event at Broward College in Davie, beginning at 1 p.m.

•  Bush will team up with U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, former U.S. Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Adam Putnam, and Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll for another Get-Out-the-Vote event in Hialeah, beginning at 3:30 p.m.

•  First Lady Michelle Obama attends a Democratic rally in Orlando at 6 p.m.
