With Florida's black vote lagging, Clinton hits the airwaves



With early signs shaky, Hillary Clinton and allies are racing to build support among black voters. Today, the Clinton campaign released a radio ad in Florida while her super PAC dropped another TV ad featuring President Obama.

The black vote so far is under performing 2012. Hispanics, meantime, are up over 2012, many motivated by Trump's incendiary rhetoric about immigrants. But with Florida so close, Clinton has to improve with blacks, hence the barrage of ads and a visit Thursday to Jacksonville by President Obama.
