PEMBROKE PINES — Rain forced Hillary Clinton to cut short what might have been her final Florida appearance before Tuesday’s election.

Clinton spoke for about seven minutes at an outdoor rally in a park this afternoon before the downpour led her to wrap up her remarks. No other Clinton appearances have been announced for Florida.

“Boy, is this a hardy group,” said Clinton from a covered stage as what was at first a light rain fell on hundreds of her supporters.

Clinton campaigned in Ohio Friday night with Jay Z and BeyoncĂ© and told the Florida crowd “they were amazing.”

She scoffed at Republican Donald Trump‘s effort to cast himself as a change agent.

“He kept saying things (during the three presidential debates) like ‘Well, what have you done for 30 years?’ and I’m thinking to myself, Donald, you don’t want to go there,” Clinton said. “I would have been happy to spend all four and a half hours talking about what I did compared to what he’s done.”

As the rain picked up, Clinton congratulated the crowd again on being “a hardy bunch to stand out here in the rain. I don’t think I need to tell you all of the wrong things about Donald Trump.”

The crowd began chanting “Hillary! Hillary!” as the rain increased. Clinton said “God bless you!” before exiting the stage.
