Hillary Clinton

As a presidential recount continues in Wisconsin there’s an independent push for an election review in Florida. Donald Trump won Florida by more than 100,00 votes.

There were moments when watching the Trump and Clinton campaigns discuss the election at the Campaign Managers Conference at the Harvard Institute of Politics was like watching The Jerry Springer Show without the chair-throwing (or paternity disputes).

The 2016 campaign was an ugly, knock-down, drag-out fight between two different visions of America. So it was fitting that the typically polite and clinical quadrennial gathering of campaign professionals would erupt into shouting matches and accusations raw with emotion.

Two weeks after Election Day, Hillary Clinton leads President-elect Donald Trump by 1.75 million votes. Despite Clinton's popular vote lead, Trump will move into the White House because he won the Electoral College.

Clinton's margin will grow in the coming weeks — mostly because of California, where there are still more than 2 million unprocessed ballots.

Black and African-American voters played a key role in electing Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 -- but didn’t turn out with the same enthusiasm in 2016.

 

That has a Miami-area group getting together to talk through what’s next. They call themselves the Living Room Project.

Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton spoke publicly for the first time since her concession speech a week ago. At a Children's Defense Fund event in Washington, she spoke about the importance of fighting for America's kids, but she also wove in another message, telling her supporters to persist, even after the devastating loss of the presidential race.

"I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election," she said. "I am, too, more than I can ever express."

COMMENTARY

If you’re a U.S. presidential candidate – and you’re running against Donald Trump – it takes complacency or cluelessness or both to underperform with Latino voters.

Hillary Clinton seems to have pulled it off.

From the moment Trump launched his campaign – when he branded Mexican immigrants “rapists,” “killers” and “drug-traffickers” – he dragged Latinos through the bigoted mud, scapegoating them for America’s ills.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton finds herself on the wrong end of an electoral split, moving ahead in the popular vote but losing to President-elect Donald Trump in the Electoral College, according to election results that are still being finalized.

As of midday Thursday ET, Clinton had amassed 59,938,290 votes nationally, to Trump's 59,704,886 — a margin of 233,404 that puts Clinton on track to become the fifth U.S. presidential candidate to win the popular vote but lose the election.

Edwin Sutton, 29, resigned himself to not voting in what he considers to be the most important election of his lifetime.

He’s from Miami, but currently lives in New York where he works as an actor, singer and drag queen.

Sutton said  his absentee ballot never came in the mail.

“I was just devastated,” said Sutton. “I felt powerless.”

After posting on Facebook about his frustration, a fellow member of The New York City Gay Men's Chorus unexpectedly  bought him a one-day round trip ticket to Miami.

Following up on his letter that set off a firestorm of speculation just two weeks before U.S. voters head to the polls to choose a new president, FBI Director James Comey says the investigative team that analyzed a new trove of emails that were either to or from Hillary Clinton has finished its work — and that the review doesn't change the findings he put forth in July, when he said no charges will be pursued against Clinton.

When Estelle Schultz, 98, sealed her ballot for the 2016 election, she wanted to snap a photo to commemorate.

She sent it to her granddaughter Sarah Benor, who says she was moved to post the picture on Facebook. Like many posts during this election, it went viral.

Anthony Grady waited for more than an hour in a blocks-long line to hear President Obama speak on Thursday at Florida International University. The president was campaigning for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, but Grady said he was more interested in the president's legacy than his campaign message.

 

"I’m sort of a pessimist; we may not see another African-American president for a while," Grady said.

The Broward Teachers Union welcomed Hillary Clinton to Pembroke Pines on Saturday for a last-minute appearance cut very short by heavy rainfall.

“You’re a hearty bunch,” Clinton told supporters huddled under umbrellas. “God bless you.”
