Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is making a stop in Fort Pierce, Florida on Friday.
The former secretary of state will speak at the Sunrise Theatre to share her vision for a “stronger America and an economy that works for everyone,” according to her campaign.
Doors for the event open at 9:30 a.m., and the event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
On Friday, Clinton will also speak to supporters in Coral Springs, Florida. The rally will take place at the Coral Springs Gymnasium from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Yesterday Clinton held a rally in Des Moines, Iowa. The Democratic nominee held a rally at Cowles Commons, which coincided with the first day of early voting in Iowa. Clinton discussed her vision of “an America that’s stronger together” and urged Iowans to vote early.
Clinton’s campaign positioned volunteers surrounding her rally to direct supporters to nearby polls.
“Are you ready to go to the polls?” Clinton asked to the crowd.
“When you finish here, you can go vote,” she said. “We can be on the path to victory here in Iowa.”
Organizing early voting was a strategy of President Obama’s four years ago. He won Iowa in 2008 and 2012, but Clinton is currently behind Donald Trump in the state, lagging five percentage points behind the Republican nominee in a Real Clear Politics average of polls. Clinton’s campaign is hoping Thursday’s push to vote early will help to gain momentum in the state.
“Each and every one of you has the chance to make sure that we keep our country on the right path,” Clinton said. “We have 40 days to win an election that’s going to affect the next 40 years of our country. And you– every one of you can make the difference in this election.”
