LIVE STREAM: Hillary Clinton in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Hillary Clinton will conclude her swing through Florida on Tuesday with an early-voting event in Fort Lauderdale.

The Democratic nominee will “outline her plans to create an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top,” according to her campaign. The event begins at 8:30 p.m. ET and will be held at Delevoe Memorial Park. Those wishing to attend the event can RSVP here.

A live stream of the event can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via RBC Network Broadcasting.

Clinton campaigned with former Miss Universe Alicia Machado in Dade City on Tuesday afternoon. Clinton blasted Trump for statements he allegedly made against Machado, including calling her “Miss Piggy.”

“He sure has spent a lot of time demeaning, degrading, insulting and assaulting women,” Clinton told the crowd.

“I was scared of him,” Machado said about Trump. “He made fun of me and I didn’t know how to respond. He told me that I looked ugly, and I was massive. He even called me names: Miss Piggy, Miss Housekeeping. Soon it became a joke: ‘Alicia Machado was the fat Miss Universe.’ I was sick for years fighting eating disorders.”

Machado said “it’s really clear that he does not respect women.” Adding that he judges women based on their looks.

“He thinks he can do whatever he wants and get away with it,” she continued. “Well, now I’m standing here on behalf of women and Latinos across the country.”

Machado who is now a U.S. citizen, said she will be casting her first vote for Clinton.

Following Clinton’s stop in Dade City, she is scheduled to campaign in Sanford before concluding her Florida visit in Fort Lauderdale.

Clinton’s lead over her Republican rival appears to be narrowing according to most recent polls and major election forecasts.

On Friday, she led the real estate mogul by 4.6 percentage points in an average of national polls, according to RealClearPolitics. As of Tuesday morning, her lead was just 2.2 points.

Clinton is seeking to refocus the race after FBI Director James Comey released a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday that the FBI was probing new emails related to her use of a private email server.
