Hillary Clinton will spend two days campaigning in Florida before the Democratic convention begins next week.
Clinton has scheduled events in Orlando and Tampa on Friday, and in South Florida on Saturday, her campaign announced Monday. The Tampa event will be a rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds. The campaign did not provide any further details on the Orlando and South Florida events.
The presumptive Democratic nominee is expected to name her running mate right around that time. Doing so in Florida -- or traveling to Florida immediately after the announcement -- could be a way to get lots of news coverage in the crucial battleground state. It could also rob Republican Donald Trump of some coverage following prime-time Thursday speech at the Republican National Convention.
Never miss a local story.
The Democratic National Convention will begin next Monday in Philadelphia.
