Presidential campaigns heading to battleground state Florida

in 2017/Top Headlines by

The presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are heading to Florida next week.

The campaign of the Republican nominee announced Saturday that Trump will hold an afternoon town hall meeting in Daytona Beach and an early evening rally in Jacksonville. Both events are scheduled for Wednesday. The campaign did not announce the exact locations.

The Clinton campaign announced that Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine is scheduled to visit Volusia County next Tuesday. The campaign did not release any additional details.

Florida is considered a battleground state for the presidential election. President Barack Obama won Florida in 2012. But recent polls have shown that the race is tight between Clinton and Trump in the Sunshine State.
