From CNN’s Sara Murray in New York: Source says Trump didn’t invest in Florida

There’s plenty of heartburn in Trumpland tonight about Florida.

Their key concern is how independents are going to break, but two sources say they have no idea – and no data – to indicate what will happen.

Even though Donald Trump himself has been interested in where the independents lean tonight, one source says Trump didn’t make the necessary monetary investment in Florida for them to get the data they would need to model these independent voters.

From CNN’s Jeff Zeleny in New York: Clinton camp sees positive signs in Florida

The Hillary Clinton campaign feels increasingly confident about Florida, according to two campaign advisers, one in New York and one on the ground in Florida.

Here’s why: Clinton appears to be outperforming President Obama in Miami-Dade County. She is even keeping down Trump’s winning margin in Duval County, which includes Jacksonville.

“The Hispanic numbers are going through the roof,” a senior Clinton adviser tells me, pointing to central Florida’s younger Puerto Rican voters and others.

Pennsylvania is a bit more of a mystery. This is a state without early voting, so the Clinton campaign is forced to do it “old school,” as one aide said — by looking at turnout.
