Donald Trump will spend three days in Florida as early voting begins in a crucial state where he’s trailing Hillary Clinton in recent polls.

 

Trump has scheduled rallies Sunday in Naples, Monday in Tampa and Tuesday in Sanford.

 

Early voting begins Monday around the state. Naples is part of heavily Republican Southwest Florida, where the Trump campaign needs to drive turnout. Tampa and Sanford are part of the vote-rich Interstate 4 corridor and the vital Tampa and Orlando media markets

 

The RealClearPolitics.com average of Florida polls shows Clinton leading Trump by 4 points in the state. In addition to those polls, a Florida Chamber Political Institute poll released Friday afternoon gives Clinton a 46-to-42 percent lead over Trump, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 5 percent.
