Bill Clinton set to attend voter registration events in Florida on Tuesday

The Big Dog is making a big push to register Floridians to vote.

Former President Bill Clinton will make three stops in the Sunshine State Tuesday to encourage Floridians to register to vote ahead of the voter registration deadline. The former president is scheduled to attend public voter registration events in Palm Beach, Lee, and Pinellas counties.

No other information about President Clinton’s events were immediately available.

Tuesday is the final day to register to vote, change party affiliation, or update voter registration information in time for the Nov. 8 election. The Hillary Clinton campaign had asked for an extension because of Hurricane Matthew, but Gov. Rick Scott said last week he wouldn’t extend the deadline.

The Florida Democratic Party on Sunday sued Scott and his top elections’ chief in federal court, asking for a one-week extension.

The former president won’t have the state to himself on Tuesday. Al Gore, who served as President Clinton’s vice president, is scheduled to campaign with Hillary Clinton in Miami on Tuesday afternoon. Gore is expected to discuss climate change.

Donald Trump is also campaigning in Florida. The Republican nominee is scheduled to hold a rally at Aaron Bessant Park in Panama City Beach on Tuesday evening.
