FLORIDA CITY, Fla. (WSVN) — Just seven days before election day, democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, returned to Florida for campaign rallies across the state.
Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton made a campaign a stop in Dade City, at the Pasco-Hernando State College East Campus, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Then it was off to Sanford at the Sanford Civic Center, from 6:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. Lastly, she heads off to Fort Lauderdale, at Delevoe Memorial Park, from 8:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
“I think the stakes are higher on this election,” said one woman at Delevoe Memorial Park. “I really wanna see Hillary win.”
A recent POLITICO report says African-American voters aren’t taking advantage of early voting to the same extent that they did during President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election.
The African-American Research Library and Cultural Center, an early voting center, is just steps away from Delevoe Memorial Park.
“I want to make sure that every voter in florida spends these next seven days thinking about what’s at stake in this election, because honestly, I believe this may be the most important election of our lifetime.”
Earlier in the week, Clinton was at a Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony concert. She clearly doesn’t want to let Florida’s 29 electoral votes slip away.
“Somebody asked me the other day, ‘Why do you keep coming back to Florida?'” Clinton said earlier Tuesday. “Just look around, folks!”
Former President Bill Clinton is making campaign stops in Florida City, at The Florida City Youth Activity Center, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., in Immokalee at the Immokalee Pioneer Museum, at Roberts Ranch from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and lastly in St. Petersburg at the Thomas “Jet” Jackson Recreation Center, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
“I got the chance to shake his hand and say hello, so it’ll be good to try and see him again,” said one voter in Florida City.
Vice President Joe Biden will be in West Palm Beach, Wednesday, and President Obama will be at Florida International University in West Miami-Dade, Thursday.
Republican nominee Donald Trump will be in Bayfront Park, Wednesday afternoon, for a rally expected to begin at noon.
