Gabrielle Union, Marc Anthony stump for Obama

CREATED Nov. 1, 2012

MIAMI (AP) - Actress Gabrielle Union and singer Marc Anthony are among the celebrities warming up the crowd for first lady Michelle Obama in the battleground state of Florida.

The two reminded thousands of the president's grass-roots supporters in Miami on Thursday that the stakes in next week's election were too high to sit back and do nothing

Union, who is dating Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, said President Barack Obama has a clear vision to lead 100 percent of the country, referring to Mitt Romney's criticism of the 47 percent of Americans who pay no income tax.

Anthony said he shared Obama's values about hard work and giving everyone a fair shot.

Earlier in the day, singer Stevie Wonder rallied the crowd in Jacksonville, where the first lady also stopped.
