Hernando County Democrat uses robocall to narrow mail-in ballot gap

If President Barack Obama wins Florida for a second time, he'll have plenty of people to thank for a re-election victory that at the moment hardly seems like a sure thing.

One of Obama's foot soldiers is Steve Zeledon, a 77-year-old living in Hernando County.

For the past two weeks, the retired Litton Industries executive and chairman of the Hernando County Democrats has coordinated a statewide grassroots telephone effort to get Democrats to request absentee ballots a strategy that Republicans have long excelled at in Florida.

Zeledon says more than 2.6 million automated "robocalls" have been made to Democrats in nearly 50 counties.
