FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – With just seven days to go until the general election, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will be back in Florida on Tuesday to rally support and she won’t be alone.
Her husband will also be campaigning throughout the state.
Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to speak at a rally in Florida City, at the Florida City Youth Activity Center, at noon. He’s also scheduled to attend rallies later in the day in Immokalee and St. Petersburg.
During the rallies, former President Clinton is expected to urge supporters to take advantage of early voting and check their registration status at iwillvote.com. He’ll also talk about his wife plans for the economy and her “vision for an America that is stronger together.”
Tuesday evening, Hillary Clinton will attend an early voting event at Reverend Samuel Delevoe Memorial Park in Ft. Lauderdale. Earlier in the day she’ll make stops in Dade City and Sanford.
On Monday she forcefully challenged the FBI’s new email inquiry, declaring during a campaign rally in battleground Ohio, “There’s no case here.”
On Friday, FBI Director James Comey alerted Congress that the FBI had obtained new material that may be related to its dormant investigation into whether classified information passed through Clinton’s private email server while she served as secretary of state.
The FBI plans to review the emails to see if they contain classified information and if so, whether they were handled properly.
Clinton accused the FBI of having jumped into the election “with no evidence of any wrongdoing with just days to go.” She said that if the bureau wants to look at the emails, which appear tied to her longtime aide Huma Abedin, “by all means, they should look at them.”
The investigation appears to center on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former congressman and Abedin’s estranged husband. It’s unclear whether the material on the device was from Clinton. It’s also not known if the emails in question are new or duplicates of the thousands the former secretary of state and her aides have already turned over.
