Trump, Clinton campaigns watch for Matthew's impact on Fla.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Like other Americans, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are steering clear of battleground Florida, where Hurricane Matthew threatens to wreak havoc on the final stretch of presidential campaigning.
The campaigns have rushed to move staff and volunteers, close offices and cancel events in the path of the storm. And as many Floridians heed calls to evacuate, both candidates have begun the delicate and difficult task of pursuing votes during a crisis.
Clinton's campaign has asked the state for more time to register voters, but Florida Gov. Rick Scott has rejected that as unnecessary. Meanwhile, the Trump team has pulled its negative TV ads from Florida airwaves.
The hurricane was expected to hit Trump's prized Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
