HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -

President Obama will campaign in South Florida on Sunday as part of a blitz through the country's battleground states ahead of Tuesday's general election.

The grassroots rally will be held at McArthur High School in Hollywood. The rally is scheduled to begin at 3:40 p.m. Senator Bill Nelson, who is also seeking re-election, will join the President at the rally, and South Florida rapper, Pitbull, will also be on hand to help fire up the crowd.

The event is free and open to the public. Tickets, however, were handed out on Friday. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.

Now that early voting is over, the ground game for each of the campaigns shifts to voter turnout. For the president, that means running up the margins in counties he should carry on Tuesday, including Broward.

In Florida, most polls shows Mitt Romney leading the race. A Tampa Bay Times, Miami Herald, Mason-Dixon poll shows the republican with a 6-point lead among likely voters 51% to 45%.

Romney's runningmate, Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), spent Saturday campaigning in Panama City, Fla., a part of the state the campaign is poised to do well in on election night.

Mitt Romney is campaigning in the Philadelphia area on Sunday.
