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

Around midday, WMNF asked some Hillsborough County voters if they ran into any troubles while voting.

WMNF spoke with Alex Sink, Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, outside a polling location at the Seminole Heights Baptist Church.

Sink, a Democrat and Obama supporter, predicted he would win the state.

“I feel like Obama’s going to carry Florida.”

In central and West Tampa, WMNF encountered mostly Obama supporters, including two women who waved signs as traffic on Columbus Drive passed the West Tampa Convention Center. But there were also McCain supporters.

In West Tampa, City Council member Charlie Miranda would not disclose who he voted for but said he was encouraged by the large turnout.
