Clinton Continues Campaigning in Crucial Florida, Hoping to Widen LeadOct. 25, 201602:18
COCONUT CREEK, Fla. — Hillary Clinton Tuesday said that Donald Trump’s refusal to say he will accept the election results is an “unprecedented attack” on American democracy and urged Floridians to continue to turn out to vote early.
“Americans are coming together,” she said during a rally at Broward College. "At the very moment when Donald Trump is making an unprecedented attack on our democracy, millions of people are registering to vote early and volunteer in this campaign.”
Clinton also debuted a new zinger against her opponent. She predicted that Trump would have called George Washington a “loser” for giving up the presidency after eight years and praised it as “one of the most important decisions any president has ever made.”

For the fourth straight day, Clinton kept a focus on down ballot races. She touted Democrat Patrick Murphy in his race against Marco Rubio, knocking the Florida senator for continuing to support the Republican nominee.
“Unlike his opponent, Patrick Murphy has never been afraid to stand up to Donald Trump,” Clinton said. “I think Florida deserves a senator who is going to fight for comprehensive immigration reform” and “who actually believes climate change is real.”
With only two weeks left until the election, Clinton urged voters not to become “complacent” and to continue casting their ballots ahead of time. Conveniently, there was an early voting site up right across the street from the event.
Mid-way through her remarks, the crowd erupted into a chorus of “Happy Birthday.” A surprised Clinton thanked them and pivoted, calling her third and final debate against Trump an “early” present. She turns 69 years old on Wednesday.
