SANFORD, Fla. – Hillary Clinton spoke Tuesday evening to a crowd at the Sanford Civic Center during one of three campaign stops across the Sunshine State.

Doors opened at 4:15 p.m., and the event started at 6:15 p.m. Clinton was running late from another campaign event in South Florida. 

The Democratic presidential nominee appeared Tuesday at the Pasco-Hernando State College East Campus in Dade City before traveling to the Sanford event. Then at 8:30 p.m., Clinton will speak at Delevoe Memorial Park in Fort Lauderdale.

Meanwhile, a government official said Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey have spoken privately with each other since news broke that the FBI would review new emails in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The conversation took place Monday. The official said Lynch asked Comey how he was doing.

The official was not authorized to discuss a private conversation by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The official said Comey still has Lynch's support.

Comey alerted Congress on Friday that the FBI would be reviewing new emails it had discovered that may be tied to the Clinton email investigation. That notification was given over the objections of the Justice Department, which opposed such an action so close to the election.
