MIAMI (AP) - Florida Democrats are getting some last-minute help from the White House.

Vice President Joe Biden will visit South Florida Sunday and Monday to help former Gov. Charlie Crist and Rep. Joe Garcia in a pair of tight races. Crist is running neck-and-neck with GOP Gov. Rick Scott while Garcia is locked in a close contest with Republican Carlos Curbelo.

Scott is also getting help from high-profile figures. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will campaign for the GOP incumbent in Naples on Saturday and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will appear with Scott in Hialeah on Sunday.

The Florida governor’s race has been one of the closest and most expensive contests in the country. Both national parties see an opportunity to control the levers of government in the nation’s largest swing-voting state going into the 2016 presidential election.
