Millions of Robocalls from McCain

By Juliet Eilperin
MIAMI -- The John McCain campaign placed a total of 10 million robo-calls to Florida voters over the past few days, according to McCain's spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker. The calls were recorded by the senator himself, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) and two Cuban American House Republicans, brothers Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart. In areas such as Tampa and the northern part of the state, the calls mentioned that McCain had been endorsed by retired Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf.

Campaign volunteers knocked on doors in Tampa, Pensacola, Jacksonville and Orlando, while others stood on busy street corners waving signs. And McCain dispatched some of his higher profile allies, such as Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, and former GOP governors Jane Swift (Mass.) and Buddy Roemer (La.) to campaign on his behalf in targeted areas across the state Tuesday.
