Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton make their final pitch to voters

Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton are making their final pitch to voters.  The candidates released their final ads over the weekend.

Trump uses his ad to reinforce his message of making America stronger by shoring up the military and cracking down on illegal immigration.


Trump is following it up with a list of issues to address in his first 100 days in office if elected. That includes lobbying bans, promoting school choice and repealing the affordable care act.



Watch Hillary Clinton's Final Campaign AdHillary Clinton is making the closing argument of the presidential election on prime time television on Monday night. In a special, two-minute advertising spot to air on the eve on the election, the Democratic nominee, wearing a cream-colored shirt and looking directly at the camera, condenses many of the themes of her campaign into the 120-second ad.

Meanwhile in her final pitch, Clinton tells voters she wants to invest in infrastructure, pass immigration reform legislation and overhaul the criminal justice system—all in her first 100 days in office if elected.

The candidates and their surrogates have been crisscrossing Florida in the run-up to Election Day. The final poll from the Quinnipiac Institute shows Florida in a dead heat.
