Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton are working together to swing Florida from the red to the blue state column.

It's the first time the bitter primary opponents have appeared together since a pair of fundraisers in early July.

More than 50,000 people gathered outside a sports arena in Orlando early this evening to see them side-by-side.

The pair mocked the Republican ticket by saying the election's theme should be "jobs, baby, jobs" not the Republican ticket's "drill, baby, drill" chant for people hurting in a nearly unprecedented economic crisis.

With just over two weeks left until Election Day, Obama is setting aside two full days to campaign across Florida, which twice went for President Bush.

Obama's swing is timed to coincide with today's opening of early voting statewide.
