Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will campaign Friday and Saturday in Florida, highlighting the importance of the state in this year's battle for the White House.

Clinton on Friday will visit Orlando and hold a rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, her campaign said Monday. She will then attend a rally Saturday in South Florida but has not announced the location. 

The visit to Florida is sandwiched between Thursday's end of the Republican National Convention and the July 25 start of the Democratic National Convention.
