Former Vice President Al Gore will campaign with Hillary Clinton for the first time on Tuesday.
Gore, who served as Bill Clinton’s vice president for eight years, will discuss the dangers of climate change, and what is at stake in the November election. His 2006 documentary on climate change, An Inconvenient Truth, won an Oscar.
As the Washington Post reported, Clinton’s campaign is hoping Gore will help Clinton appeal to millennials who list climate change as a core issue.
Gore, who endorsed Clinton following the Democratic National Convention in July, will also urge voters to register. A federal court on Monday extended Florida’s voter registration deadline from Tuesday to 5 p.m. ET Wednesday as a result of Hurricane Matthew hitting Florida’s east coast last week.
According to a Real Clear Politics average, Florida polls show Clinton edging Donald Trump by 2.4 percentage points in a four-way race that includes Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. The polls were taken before the release of a 2005 tape in which Trump made lewd comments about groping women.
Tuesday’s event will take place at the Theodore Gibson Center at the Miami Dade College Kendall Campus. Doors open at 1:00 p.m. EST. Those wishing to attend can RSVP on Clinton’s campaign website.
Clinton plans to take the stage with the former vice president at 3 p.m.
