Rubio urges early voting while stumping for Romney in Wisconsin



Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Waukesha - Hundreds of Republican Party supporters jammed a campaign center Thursday morning to listen to one of the party's rising stars, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

With election day fast approaching, both parties are turning out their highest-profile surrogates to turn on their respective bases and ignite higher vote turnout. Rubio said Wisconsin has "done a pretty good job sending us leaders the last few years," as he ticked off the names of U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Paul Ryan, the congressman from Janesville who is Mitt Romney's GOP running mate.

"We're going to bottle a few gallons of milk and cheese and take it back to Florida," he said.

Rubio urged people to vote early and then get their family and friends to the polls. He also talked about the stakes in the election, as he discussed the country's political and economic freedoms. (full story here)
