Vice President Joe Biden rallied supporters in a small park in Ocala Wednesday afternoon.

He focused on women’s issues and job growth under President Barack Obama and spent most of his 40-minute speech bashing Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

“We win Florida, we win this election,” he said.

The crowd of several hundred supporters held “Forward!” signs and cheered as Biden wove in his oft-publicized personal anecdotes and emphasized his doubts about Romney’s proposed budget and policies.

“His plans aren’t sketchy,” he said. “They’re Etch-A-Sketchy.”

Biden continues to tour the swing state as Obama visits the Northeast to take stock of the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.
