WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is getting down into the nitty-gritty as he campaigns in Florida for Hillary Clinton.

Obama is urging Clinton supporters at a get-out-the-vote rally in Miami to take advantage of the opportunity they have to vote early, before Election Day on Tuesday.

In fact, he noted, there's a location just minutes away from Florida International University, where the rally was taking place. Then he ticked off the exact street address.

The rally is the first of two that Obama is headlining in Florida on Thursday. He has another later in the day in Jacksonville.

Democrats are campaigning hard to help Clinton win Florida, a presidential battleground that Obama narrowly won twice. A victory there would almost assure Clinton the presidency.
