Obama camp touts early voting edge in Fla.

Mitt Romney stumped in Florida on Saturday, appealing to women and independents in the state with a plea for bipartisanship and civility in politics. And although Obama wasn't in the state over the weekend, he sent out an army of celebrity surrogates to rally supporters and volunteers on Saturday, and will attend a campaign event there Monday morning with former President Bill Clinton.

Though Romney has held a slight lead in most polls of Florida, the Obama campaign is fiercely contesting the state in hopes of winning its 29 electoral college votes.
