Florida Gov. Rick Scott rejected a request by Hillary Clinton's campaign to consider extending the state's voter-registration deadline because of the potential disruption from Hurricane Matthew.
“I’m not going to extend it,” the Republican governor told reporters in Tallahassee, according to the Miami Herald. “Everybody has had a lot of time to register. On top of that, we have lots of opportunities to vote: early voting, absentee voting, Election Day. So I don’t intend to make any changes.”
Speaking to reporters Thursday, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook emphasized that the chief concern is the safety of Florida citizens and the campaign's army of paid staff and volunteers working in the key state.
