TEMPLE TERRACE, FL.--Mayor Rahm Emanuel stops by a Obama for America office on Saturday afternoon, part of a swing through battleground Florida. This office is near the University of Southern Florida.

Emanuel will meet with canvassers here and then head over to St. Petersburg for an Obama field office visit. The emphasis in Florida--as in other battleground states--is early voting. Early voting starts in Florida on Oct. 27 at local polling places. Voters can also vote at local Supervisor of Elections offices.

Obama got a boost here Saturday: The Tampa Bay Times endorsed him, stating, "this is not the time to reverse course and return to the failed policies of the past."

Last time I was in Tampa: In August, for the Republican National Convention.
