While her husband, former President Bill Clinton, made a stop Tuesday in Fort Myers, Hillary Clinton brought in a familiar name at a stop in Miami: former Vice President Al Gore.
"Gore will discuss the urgent threat posed by climate change and lay out the high stakes of November's election", Clinton's team said in a statement.
Overlooking their past animosity, the pair campaigned together for the first time since 2000.
"Your vote really, really, really counts", Gore said.
Just yesterday there were six more cases of Zika in Miami-Dade County.
"Your vote, really, really, really counts", Gore said. "For those of you older than 25, I heard you murmuring just now, but take it from me it was a very close election".
He is locked in a close campaign with Democrat John Gregg, a former Indiana House speaker who narrowly lost to Pence in the 2012 election.
The rally at Miami-Dade Community College focused almost exclusively on climate change, and it brought Gore back to the state he lost 16 years ago in a bitter legal fight. A recount of the Florida results went on for weeks in 2000 before Bush was ultimately declared the victor of the state and the presidency. It marked the fourth time in USA history a candidate won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College.
Gore, who won the 2007 Nobel peace prize for his efforts to tackle man-made climate change, highlighted in his movie An Inconvenient Truth, blamed the severity of recent hurricanes on global warming. Both Trump and Clinton are in the key battleground state of Florida, Tuesday. The results sent Bush to the White House and Gore into years of self-imposed political exile.
"We can't afford a candidate who doesn't accept climate change", Clinton said. Instead, she stuck steadfastly to themes of climate change and her policy proposals to "accelerate the transition" towards clean energy in the US.
She also leaned on Gore's expertise in the field.
Bayh and Gregg have resisted Republican attempts to tie them to Clinton in a state the GOP has won in 11 of the last 12 presidential elections.
Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence's pick to take his place as IN governor isn't guaranteeing that Donald Trump will get his vote for president.
"I'm running against a guy who denies science, denies climate change, says it's a hoax created by the Chinese", she said.
"My friends, please", Clinton told the crowd, "let's focus on what's really important in this election and in your future and the future of our country".
"Well, why doesn't he ask a scientist? That's why she has a comprehensive action plan to make America the clean energy superpower of the 21st century, create millions of good-paying jobs, and protect the future of our children and grandchildren." said the campaign in their announcement.
However, Gore had another big message aside from the risks climate change.
"Every beach I go to is polluted", said Demayo, a former Sanders supporter who said he is reluctantly voting for Clinton. Introducing him, Clinton barely mentioned the fact that he served as vice president or came within a single Supreme Court vote of winning the White House.
