As President Obama and Mitt Romney prepare for tonight’s face-off, their supporters are preparing to root on their candidates from afar with debate-watch events throughout the state.
In a release announcing the watch-events, Obama campaign officials said they are “continuing to use the debates as an opportunity to bring supporters together.” Obama events across Florida will take place at local campaign offices, college campuses, and restaurants equipped with large televisions.
The Romney campaign, meanwhile, is once again offering an incredible array of different cuisines. Romney supporters can snack on traditional Bavarian soft pretzels, specially prepared enchiladas and fresh ahi tuna as they watch the debate.
The debate starts at 9 p.m. Below is a partial list of watch events happening across the state tonight.
