As the final days before the election approach, Republican leaders are crisscrossing the state to drum up votes.
Florida Cabinet member Adam Putnam, the state's commissioner of agriculture, and Senate candidate Connie Mack teamed up today for a visit to DeLand to support the Romney-Ryan ticket.
The two met up at a gala Nov. 1, and spent today touring.
Putnam told a group gathered outside Republican Headquarters, 342-B E. New York Ave. in DeLand, to make that final push to get people to vote and to use the early-voting option.
In Volusia County, early-voting counts have been much higher for Democrats than for Republicans.
Mack thanked all of the volunteers who have supported the GOP during this election season, and he also encouraged people to exercise their right to vote.
Karen Clark attended the bus-stop event at Republican Headquarters. She said it is important for politicians to take time to meet their supporters.
She recalled meeting Gov. Rick Scott during his initial campaign, and said she was on her way to see Scott speak in Daytona Beach.
Clark said feeling like government is accessible to the people is a good thing.
"People feel better when they can walk up and shake their hands," she said.
