  • “We’re all in this together”

    With just three days left until Election Day, President Obama reminded voters in Mentor, Ohio, how much we've accomplished over the past four years—and how much we still have left to do together.

    With just three days left until Election Day, President Obama reminded voters in Mentor, Ohio, how much we've accomplished over the past four years—and how much we still have left to do together:

    "You see heroes running into buildings, wading into the water to help their fellow citizens; neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy; leaders of different political parties working together to fix what’s broken; it’s a spirit that says no matter how bad a storm is, no matter how tough the times are, we’re all in this together—that we rise or fall as one nation, as one people.

    "And that spirit has guided this country along its improbable journey for more than two centuries. It has carried us through the trials and tribulations of the last four years. Remember in 2008, we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

    "Today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. The American auto industry is back on top. Home values are on the rise. We’re less dependent on foreign oil than at any time in 20 years. Because of the service and sacrifice of our brave men and women in uniform, the war in Iraq is over. The war in Afghanistan is winding down. Al Qaeda is on the run, and Osama bin Laden is dead.

    "So we’ve made real progress these past four years. But Ohio, we’re here today because we all know we’ve got more work to do. … As long as there’s a single American who wants a job and still can’t find work; as long as there are families who are working harder and harder but are still falling behind; as long as there’s a child anywhere in this country who’s languishing in poverty, or barred from opportunity, we got more work to do. Our fight goes on."

  • Floridians line up to vote early

    Today at 7 a.m., early voting began across Florida. Well before the doors opened—or the sun was up—Floridians were lining up outside their polling places to cast their ballots 10 days before Election Day.

    Today at 7 a.m., early voting began across Florida. Well before the doors opened—or the sun was up—Floridians were lining up outside their polling places to cast their ballots 10 days before Election Day.

    Milagros and her husband joined the queue at the Platt Regional Library in Tampa before the sun was up. She's a veteran volunteer with the local OFA field office, but this morning carries special significance. As a new American citizen, this is the first time the Venezuelan-born Milagros is eligible to vote.

    "This is my first time voting. I'm really proud to be a citizen of the United States. My husband and I went to bed last night at 2 a.m., and we decided to wake up very early and come here and do it on the first day. We want to make sure our president is re-elected. He's the best for this country. He worries about the middle class. He worries about everybody. He loves America, and he wants to help us. I want to do anything I can [to re-elect him.]"
