ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: Democrat Hillary Clinton on Saturday (November 5) urged supporters in Miami who have already cast their ballots to spend the final days of the campaign rallying for more votes in Florida, a swing state that could prove decisive in Tuesday's vote. Clinton spoke to a supporters who waited in the rain to hear her speak, but cut short her speech because of the bad weather. She told them that they were a "hardy bunch" and vowed to be a president for all, including those who didn't vote for her, if elected. Clinton was joined by Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager who was shot dead in 2012 by a Sanford, Florida neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman. Opinion polls show Clinton's lead over her Republican rival Donald Trump has narrowed after a revelation a week ago that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into a new trove of emails as part of its probe into her handling of classified information while she was secretary of state. The state opinion polls have found Florida as one of the most competitive among the swing states - those that are hotly contested because their voters can swing either to Republicans or Democrats The Real Clear Politics average of Florida opinion polls found Clinton with a lead of about 1 percentage point - indicating the race there is a virtual tie. Following the afternoon rally in southern Florida, Clinton heads to Philadelphia, where she will appear with pop singer Katy Perry for an evening rally.
