Hillary Clinton urges Florida Democrats to vote - on the wrong day



Hillary Clinton fired up a enthusiastic crowd in Orlando Wednesday, blasting the Republican presidential field for insulting countless Americans.

"They seem more interested in seeing who can say the most offensive and insulting comments. You've heard what they said. They have insulted Latinos, women, Muslims," she told a heavily Hispanic crowd of roughly 600 people. "They are determined to absolutely insult everybody berfore this is over. They're out-Trumping Trump, if you will. I have one word for them: Basta! Enough!"

"Donald Trump has made racism and hatred the hallmarks of his campaign," she said of her former ally whose wedding she attended.

She never mentioned her Democratic primary rivals by name, but exhorted the crowd to vote.

"I need your help the primary," she said. "Make sure you are registered to vote. Make sure you do vote on March the first."

Unfortunately for her, Florida's presidential primary is March 15.
