Florida Voters Sound Off On Presidential Candidates
MELISSA BLOCK, host:
Throughout the program today, we're bringing you the voices of voters. Marcia Player(ph) is a nurse in Tallahassee, Florida. She voted for Barack Obama. Here's why.
Ms. MARCIA PLAYER (Nurse): Well, I just feel like the people in charge of the government right now have not been paying attention to what's happening here in our country. And a lot of things have sort of unraveled, these last four years particularly. I really think it's time for new people in the government who really take a hard look at what's going on and make the changes that I think need to be changed to stabilize this.
Colonel DAVE SUBAN(ph) (Retired Air Force Colonel): My choice was based on we need adult supervision in the White House.
BLOCK: At the same polling place, Dave Suban, a retired Air Force colonel, said he voted for John McCain.
Colonel SUBAN: He represents the future of this country, and I'm very concerned about national security issues. And also, I do not want to live in a socialist republic.
BLOCK: Voters at the polls today in Tallahassee, Florida. Tonight, you can hear our election coverage on most NPR stations starting at 7 p.m. Eastern. And at our Web site, you can find results for all of the key races plus news, analysis, and live blogs.
