UPDATE: The event has begun.
At 3PM today Hillary Clinton will hold a rally at The Manor, the largest of the 15 or so gay nightclubs that crowd the main strip of Wilton Manors. I’m putting this post up a little early just to give you a heads-up. From the Fort Lauderale Sun-Sentinel:
The appearance shows the importance the Clinton campaign is placing on South Florida, where Democrats need a strong turnout to overcome more Republican areas of the state. In the last week, she’s been in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties. In the coming week, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will campaign on her behalf in South Florida.
Activists have been planning the LGBT community event for most of the last week, but didn’t learn until Saturday afternoon that Clinton would be the headliner. The Clinton campaign said she would discuss her agenda “that would support the LGBT community in South Florida and across the country.” Local organizers designed the event to encourage early voting. The venue, a nightclub called the Manor Complex, 2345 Wilton Drive, is just down the street from a Broward County early voting site.
