Castor stumps in Sarasota



U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Tampa, made a pit stop at the Barack Obama town hall meeting in Sarasota today that featured vice presidential candidate Joe Biden.

She encouraged Obama-Biden supporters to make a pitch to their undecided friends. "Explain to your friends and family who is on your side," she said.

Castor got a standing ovation after asking the Sarasota audience to support Democrat Christine Jennings in her run for the House.

"Hope is on its way," she said. "We cannot afford more of the same. It's time to change what's happening in Washington."
