Hillary Clinton to spend primary night in Florida on Tuesday



Hillary Clinton will hold her Florida primary night party at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

A Real Clear Politics average of polls between March 2 and 13 showed Clinton leads U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders by nearly 30 points in Florida.

Palm Beach County has the third highest number of registered Democratic voters behind Broward and Miami-Dade counties. The three South Florida counties add up to a key bloc of Democratic voters that Clinton will want to court for the general election if she is her party's nominee.

Clinton has held a few public events in South Florida in recent months including her Super Tuesday celebration in Miami. Sanders held a rally in Miami earlier this month before the two faced off in a debate at Miami Dade College.

Florida and Ohio hold primaries Tuesday. Spokespersons for Sanders' couldn't immediately be reached regarding where he will spend Tuesday.

On the GOP side, Marco Rubio will hold his event in Miami and Donald Trump somewhere in South Florida but neither campaign has announced the location.
