Tim Kaine to promote voter registration in South Florida this weekend



Hillary Clinton's running mate, Tim Kaine, will be back in South Florida this weekend to urge Floridians to register to vote ahead of the state's new Oct. 18 deadline.

Kaine plans to visit Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, where the Clinton campaign says he'll also discuss his and Clinton's economic plan.

Members of the public interested in attending the Miami event on Saturday afternoon can RSVP here. Additional details about the rest of the South Florida swing haven't been released yet.

A federal judge in Tallahassee on Wednesday delayed Florida's voter registration deadline by a week because of Hurricane Matthew, giving both Democrats and Republicans more time to rally potential new voters.
