The sun doesn't shine equally on all in Florida. Barack Obama has made significant headway in the Sunshine State, where he didn’t even campaign during the primaries and where he now has a small lead, while John McCain finds himself unexpectedly on the defensive. The state is “a case study of the troubles of the McCain campaign,” The New York Times reports. The particularly hard blow of the economic crisis and an early confidence about the state that has proven ill-founded have put McCain on the defensive. Meanwhile, Obama has outspent him 4-to-1 on advertising, and the Democratic Party has registered almost 400,000 more new voters.
