WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:

Yesterday, former New York City Mayor Rudy Guilani appeared in four different parts of Florida to stump for John McCain.

His first appearance was in South Tampa at Square One Burgers, where an estimated 300 people packed themselves into the eatery to hear Guilaini, Gov. Charlie Crist and state Republican Chairman Jim Greer.

Guiliani spoke for about 15 minutes and fielded questions informally before getting into his prepared remarks.

The McCain campaign and its surrogates have had a field day in using Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden’s remarks that Obama will be challenged internationally within his first six months in office.

Governor Charlie Crist’s decision last Tuesday to expand early voting hours has been hailed by most everyone in the state – but there have been reports about grumblings by some Republicans. WMNF asked Governor Crist about that on Sunday.

As has been the case at other McCain/Palin events WMNF has covered in recent weeks, rock solid Republicans don’t believe the polls that show Barack Obama with a solid lead nationally and in many critical battleground states.

Tampa resident Brian Garry says you can’t believe the polls.

Senator McCain made a final appearance in Florida this morning outside Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
