TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Candidates from both major parties rallied supporters and stated their case to undecided voters in the Tampa Bay area on Saturday.

Democrat Charlie Crist ended his day in Tampa after stopping by other central Florida “get out the vote” events. Crist joined State Representative Fentrice Driskell and former State Representative Sean Shaw for a meet-and-greet in Ybor City.

Crist encouraged his supporters to get their friends and family to vote, hoping to counteract what he described as Gov. DeSantis “making it more difficult” for people to vote by eliminating two predominantly Black congressional districts and doing away with ballot drop boxes in minority communities.

“It’s time for us to take our Florida back, a Florida that has decency, kindness, and compassion,” the former congressional representative said. “That’s what the election really is all about – respecting everyone.”

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis appeared across the bay at a rally in Clearwater, hosted by Turning Point Action. DeSantis was joined by the organization’s founder, Charlie Kirk, and Anna Paulina Luna, who is the Republican candidate for Florida’s 13th Congressional District.

At the rally, DeSantis told Republicans not to get complacent in the days leading up to the election – despite polls showing DeSantis with a sizable lead over his opponent – and to encourage their loved ones to vote. He also touted his accomplishments as governor.

“We’re also very proud that we are, in fact, also viewed by so many people as the freest state in the United States,” DeSantis said. “And you had a lot of people who didn’t want that to be the case.”
