In South Florida stops, Kaine urges Clinton supporters to vote

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine made two campaign stops in South Florida, Saturday, as he continued to urge Hillary Clinton supporters to head to the polls in November.

At a gathering with local elected officials in Pembroke Pines, the former Virginia governor praised his running mate. “We’re here to talk about electing a great Democratic president, Hillary Clinton,” he said.

After touring Design South Florida, an event production company in Miami Lakes, Kaine turned to financial matters as he spoke about the strength of small businesses. “Let’s take that strength of our country on the small business side and even go farther,” he said. “Let’s even make it easier. Let’s even make it better.”

It was also a busy weekend on the campaign trail for Republican nominee Donald Trump’s running mate. At a rally in Virginia, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said his presidential ticket holds the key to bringing significant change to the nation’s capital.

“The American people are sick and tired of pay-to-play politics in Washington, D.C.,” said Pence. “It’s the kind of politics that are going to come to a crashing end the day that Donald Trump steps into the White House.

Both presidential candidates have been busy as well. Clinton received her first national intelligence briefing on her way to the Hamptons.

Meanwhile, her campaign manager, Robby Mook, continued to warn voters of a Trump presidency. “He will be a disaster for working people in this country, and particularly for hardworking immigrant people in this country,” he said.

Across the country, Trump encouraged voters in Iowa to hit the polls. “Together, we’re going to win this state in November, and we are going to win the White House for the American people,” he said.

With Election Day a little more than two months away, the candidates have another busy week ahead of them. Trump will make a stop in Washington state on Tuesday, and on Wednesday, Clinton is scheduled to address the American Legion in Ohio.
