Vice President Joe Biden campaigns for Clinton in Orlando

Biden urges Floridians to register to vote

ORLANDO, Fla. – Vice President Joe Biden campaigned for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in Orlando on Monday.

Biden spoke at the Cheyenne Ballroom on West Church Street Monday afternoon. Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer kicked off the speeches as a long line of people sprawled outside of the Cheyenne Saloon to see Biden.

Biden highlighted Clinton's vision for the country.

"Hillary is the only candidate who has any notion of what the immense opportunities are," Biden said.

He praised Clinton's tax proposals and foreign relations experience. He pushed her agenda, saying that America is stronger together with an economy that works for everyone.

Biden questioned Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's ability to be president saying he was unfit for the job.

"The way he comports himself and the words he utters, and I mean this with every fiber of my being, are truly beneath the dignity of the Office of the President of the United States."

Biden also encouraged Florida voters to make sure they're registered to vote by Oct. 11.

He ended his speech with one final stab at Trump saying candidates who appeal to fears never succeed.

"We don't scare easily. Americans don't bend, we don't bow. We endure, we move forward. We are Americans, second to none," Biden said. "That's the history and journey of America and God willing, Hillary Clinton will write the next chapter of that history."

Biden finished his speech and then mingled in the crowd, taking pictures with those who came to see him.

After the Orlando event, Biden headed to Sarasota to speak at another voter registration event at 4:30 p.m.
