Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was back in Florida Tuesday and Wednesday campaigning for Mitt Romney.
The 2008 Republican presidential nominee held “Veterans for Romney” events Tuesday and Wednesday in Tallahassee, Pensacola, Niceville, and Panama City– where he talked about the importance of Florida and the veterans vote in November.
“The most likely winner of presidency of the United States of America will be the candidate that carries the state of Florida,” McCain told an enthusiastic crowd in Panama City Tuesday evening.
“Where does that turnout come from? It has to come from the Panhandle,” McCain said. “It has to come from our veterans. It has to come from the people who care about the future of this nation.”
McCain, who called the upcoming race a “watershed election,” asked the crowd to work hard for Mitt Romney in the days and weeks ahead.
“I need you to spend some time every single day making sure that everyone you know, including your mother in law is registered to vote or is voting,” McCain said.
“I cannot remember an election I am more concerned about our security in a complex world,” McCain told the crowd.
