Recipes for Victory in Florida's 2012 election

Two political operatives give opposing views on how to win the Sunshine State.

Final Word

Steve Schale
“Fortunately for us, it’s not a must-win. The thing about Florida is ... if Barack Obama wins Florida, he is going to be president. There is no conceivable way that Mitt Romney can get to the White House without winning Florida. It’s the ‘win-and-you’re-in’ state. And we’re really the only state that can say that.”
Brett Doster
“When you look at the battleground states, and I think right now we have them isolated to about 10 to 12 battleground states around the nation, Florida is certainly one of those. Given our population size, Florida certainly will be one of the critical states either for the Obama election campaign or the Romney election campaign.”
