CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio is coasting into Election Day with a simple message: Go vote.
Rubio is making four stops around the state Monday before wrapping up appearances mid-afternoon in Hialeah.
In Clearwater, about 40 supporters greeted him as his plane pulled up. He spoke for less than three minutes, telling the crowd that he has already won the battle of ideas, but needs to make sure people vote.
Rubio said: "We can't stop, we're not there yet. We'll be there tomorrow."
Rubio is considered the favorite in a three-way race with independent Gov. Charlie Crist and Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek.
Elsewhere, Alex Sink and Rick Scott were traveling hundreds of miles around the state, hoping to sway undecideds in what is billed
as a neck-and-neck race for Florida's governor. A new Quinnipiac University Poll released Monday morning showed Sink leading Scott by one percentage point.
Experts say the race could easily go either way in the final hours leading up to Tuesday's election.
Both gubernatorial candidates made stops in Ft. Myers on Monday morning.
Sink, a Democrat, and Scott, a Republican, have waged expensive and at times, contentious campaigns. On Monday, Scott organized a final dash around South Florida while Sink was campaigning in central Florida.
