Amy Schumer's comedy show at Amalie Arena on Sunday made national headlines after it was reported that some fans booed and walked out because she bashed Donald Trump. Two days later, she read an open letter to Tampa during a show in New York City. It wasn't exactly a make-nice moment, although she did agree to enter a "rehab facility that will teach me to make all people happy. Both the rich, entitled, white people who are gonna vote for him and the very poor people — who've been tricked into it!"
DEBATE CATCH PHRASES: FROM 'LOCK BOX' TO 'LOCKER ROOM'

Times political editor Adam C. Smith takes a closer look.
FLORIDA NETS 64,000 NEW VOTERS WITH EXTRA WEEK OF REGISTRATION
Remember when Gov. Rick Scott said an extra week for registering to vote wasn't necessary after Hurricane Matthew because everyone had enough time to sign up before the storm hit?

MORE DRAFT HINDSIGHT AHEAD ON BUCS' DRAFT
