Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump concerned about voter turnout in Florida

Posted at 2:06 PM, Oct 23, 2016

Early voting begins Monday in the Tampa Bay area, two weeks before the Nov. 8 elections.

Susan MacManus, a University of South Florida professor and ABC Action News political analyst, said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, are both making strong bids to attract Florida voters.

To show off their commitment to rally Florida voters, Trump will bring his campaign to Tampa Monday. Clinton will campaign this week in Southeast Florida.

They are both concerned about voter turnout, MacManus said in an interview with Action News Weekend Edition Morning anchor James Tully Sunday, Oct. 23.

To gin up support, the candidates and their supporters are spending a combined $81 million in media advertising to attract voters. And Tampa and Orlando are the two main markets where the candidates are spending campaign advertising.
