If President Barack Obama was looking for a lift in Florida, he got one from Scott Van Duzer.

The 46-year-old, six-foot-three Republican gave Obama a bear hug, raising him off the ground as Obama marveled at the man's strength — and enthusiasm.

Of his embrace, Van Duzer said: "I was overwhelmed when I saw him."

He said Obama had his vote.

UPDATE: Here's video from CNN for those of you asking if there was any out there.
