After the heavily publicized presidential debate, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have stopped by Florida for further campaigning.
On the Republican side, Trump held a campaign event at the AeroMod International hangar at Orlando Melbourne International Airport the day after the debate. Trump claimed victory at the debate and said he was “holding back” because he “didn’t want to embarrass her.”
He also continued with his usual insults, saying that she was “incompetent as secretary of state” and “worse than Obama.” About the current president, Trump said he is a “president that doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing.”
Later in the week, Clinton went to Coral Springs, Florida to deliver a speech in the all-important swing state. She introduced a new plan called the “National Service Reserve.” Similar to the Peace Corps, this program is aimed at young people to be trained for responding to natural disaster and other emergency situations.
Proposing a new plan this close to the election may be part of her goal to seal the millennial vote. While she is currently polling higher than Trump in Florida, many millennials are planning on voting for a third-party candidate. The National Service Reserve could spark the interest of young people, since it is an opportunity specifically aimed for their age group.
