Hillary Clinton cancels Florida ads as storm approaches



From our friends at the Associated Press:

Hillary Clinton's campaign is canceling ads that were to air on Florida stations that carry the Weather Channel. The decision comes as Hurricane Matthew gains strength.

Clinton spokesman Jesse Fergus said Thursday that the campaign asked the stations to delay the ads until after the storm passes.

The Florida Weather Channel ads were part of a multimillion-dollar reshuffling of Clinton ads to reach voters the campaign sees as critical to winning the election.

In the past few days, Clinton had added numerous local cable stations, including some carrying the Weather Channel in Florida and in New Hampshire.
