ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton campaigns in Florida on Tuesday (October 11) with former Vice President and Climate Reality Project Chairman, Al Gore. "I'm running against a guy who denies science, denies climate change, says it's a hoax created by the Chinese," exclaimed Clinton, who said it was time to keep "climate change deniers" like Republican Donald Trump away from the White House. Gore agreed. "Your vote really, really, really counts. A lot. You can consider me an Exhibit A of that truth... take it from me, it was a very close election," said Gore, referring to the election of 2000. Gore, 67, was the Democratic candidate in the 2000 election when the U.S. Supreme Court stopped a vote recount in Florida, which ultimately led to Republican George W. Bush becoming the country's 43rd President. Both Trump and Clinton are in the key battleground state of Florida, Tuesday. The Reuters/Ipsos State of the Nation project released on Monday estimated that Clinton had at least a 95 percent chance of winning the 270 Electoral College votes needed to become president. The polling did not capture reaction to Trump's performance in Sunday's debate or Friday's news reports on the video.
