La. Republicans asked to volunteer in Florida

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - With Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney expected to easily win Louisiana on Nov. 6, GOP supporters are being asked to help campaign for Romney in the battleground state of Florida.

Jason Dore, executive director of the Republican Party of Louisiana, sent an email to supporters Monday, asking them to consider "deploying to Florida" to campaign for Romney in his bid to unseat Democratic President Barack Obama.

Dore says volunteers who head to Florida will make phone calls to remind people about the upcoming election, knock on doors for Romney and staff campaign events.

An attached information sheet from the Romney campaign says volunteers can work at one of 48 different offices around the state, but the campaign says volunteers will be required to cover their own travel arrangements and costs.
