WEST PALM BEACH (CBSMiami) – With just days to go before the November 8th general election, the Hillary Clinton campaign is keeping Florida squarely in its sights.
On Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden will campaign for Clinton at “Get Out The Early Vote” events in Tampa and Palm Beach Gardens.
On Tuesday, the former first lady capped a whirlwind day of campaigning by with a rally at Reverend Samuel Delevoe Memorial Park in Fort Lauderdale.
The Clinton campaign is apparently concerned black early voter turnout is lagging, especially when compared to four years ago.
“This is a big deal. There are now only seven days left in the most important election of our lifetime. We cannot take anything, anybody, anywhere for granted,” she said.
Before the South Florida stop, she passed through Dade City and Sanford.
Also, rallying the vote on her behalf in South Florida was her husband – former President Bill Clinton.
“Hello Florida City,” shouted Mr. Clinton as he took the stage shortly after noon.
During his speech, Clinton addressed big issues head on with the crowd, including the latest email problem and fears that secret information could have been compromised on his wife’s personal server.
“Don’t you think it’s interesting that Hillary’s opponent spends all his time talking about this and yet most of the people who have been heavily involved in protecting the security of this country for the last 20 years, in both parties have endorsed her,” said Mr. Clinton.
The former president spoke about the different visions of each campaign, said Donald Trump’s vision is dark and drags America backwards.
“We believe America’s best days are ahead, together,” he said to the crowd cheering in agreement. “Without record to religion, without regard to race, without regard to gender, without regard to sexual orientation, without regard to disability. Hillary, Hillary, Hillary,” he chanted.
On Thursday, President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak at an early voting rally at Florida International University before heading to Jacksonville.
