Hillary Clinton's campaign for the White House got a little star treatment in Tampa Bay Saturday night.  Grammy winning rocker Jon Bon Jovi played to a packed house with Hillary's running mate, Tim Kaine, pumping up the crowd.

In the final stretch of the presidential race, Hillary Clinton's campaign is relying on a little faith to get through.

"Take my hand and we'll make it I swear, Oh-oh, Livin' on a prayer," Bon Jovi sang.

Hundreds packing the State Theatre in St. Pete Saturday night to hear Bon Jovi's greatest hits and his message to voters.

"I believe in her, and I believe she's the answer we need today," said Bon Jovi.

Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine took the stage alongside Bon Jovi, jamming out with his harmonica. He also spoke, rallying the troops to take the campaign across the finish line, emphasizing the importance of the Florida vote.

"If you put your votes behind Hillary Clinton, it is done.  She will be president.  She will be president," Kaine said.

"It's neck and neck. So get out and vote.  It's so important.  Every go to the polls and vote," said voter Sheila Halley.

With the race so tight between Clinton and Trump in our swing state those here are hoping the choice is like one of Bon Jovi's songs.

"My life's getting clearer," sang Bon Jovi.

"I think America will step up and do what's right for our country," said voter Michael Mims.

There's just one more day to early vote.  Five million Floridians have already their ballots, and of course Tuesday is Election Day.
