Bill and Hillary Clinton Campaigning in South Florida Tuesday

With only one week until the presidential election, both Bill and Hillary Clinton were in South Florida Tuesday at separate campaign rallies.

Bill Clinton visited the Florida City Youth Activity Center, one of three stops in the Sunshine State Tuesday. He stressed the importance of Florida in the 2016 election.

"If Hillary wins Florida she will be the next President of the United States," he said.

President Clinton touted his wife's accomplishments and insisted her policies on the economy, education and national security will serve Americans best.

"Most of the people who have been heavily involved in protecting the security of this country for the last 20 years in both parties have endorsed her," he said.

Hillary Clinton spoke Tuesday night at a rally at Reverend Samuel Delevoe Memorial Park in Fort Lauderdale.

Arriving late to the rally, Clinton was greeted with cheers from a rousing crowd. 

"We cannot take anything, anybody, anywhere for granted. Are you ready to work hard and win this election," Clinton told the crowd.

Clinton tried to veer focus away from another email scandal after the FBI announced last week it may have new "pertinent" emails to review days before the polls open. 

"I have stayed focused on you, on your lives, your families, the problems that keep you up at night," Clinton said.

She took jabs at her Republican contender Donald Trump saying, "He starts out by insulting immigrants. He moves on to insult all Latinos, insults African-Americans, insults Muslims, insults people with disabilities, insults POWs and then insults women."

A protestor tried to throw Clinton off balance by yelling and carrying a sign that read "Bill Clinton is a rapist". The presidential nominee responded with the full backing of her supporters. "I am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive, dangerous vision and behavior of people who support Donald Trump."

Clinton also talked policy. She addressed income inequality and encouraged people to vote early.

Earlier in the day, Hillary Clinton spoke at rallies held in Sanford and Dade City.
