PALM BEACH (CBSMiami) – Just hours after a federal judge ordered the voter registration deadline in Florida be extended due to Hurricane Matthew, Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced her husband will rally for her in the Sunshine State.

On Monday afternoon, District Judge Mark Walker ordered the voter registration deadline be extended from Tuesday to Wednesday. Voter registration forms will be accepted until 5 p.m. that day.
