Ginny Ortino hit the campaign trail this morning for her husband, Collier sheriff's candidate Victor Ortino, with a campaign sign in each hand and a bundle of fliers under her arm.
"It's exciting," Ortino said as she tried to get the attention of voters as they walked into the Golden Gate Community Center. "I think we're having a good time."
Ortino said the campaign is gearing up for a big final push between 3 and 7 p.m., when the campaign expects the most voters to turn out to the polls.
"We've got them all covered," she said.
Not to be outdone, Kevin Rambosk backer Mark Pyne, a retired law enforcement officer from Massachusetts, stood next to a "Rambosk for Sheriff" banner on a frame of PVC pipes and propped up against his car in the parking space closest to the community center door.
"We're happy with the voter turnout and are confident of Kevin's chances," Pyne said. -- Eric Staats
