Tim Kaine was in a motorcade speeding across Florida’s capital when news broke Friday that the FBI was reviewing new Hillary Clinton emails it uncovered.

Faced with reporters minutes later outside early voting at the Leon County Courthouse, the Democratic nominee for vice president deflected.

“I’ve got to read a little more,” he said.

The renewed interest in Clinton’s emails and Kaine’s Florida swing comes as the Clinton campaign ramps up efforts here in the final week before the election. President Barack Obama rallied voters Friday in Orlando, and Clinton is expected to return to Miami Saturday at a Jennifer Lopez concert.

Inside Oglesby Union on the FSU campus, Kaine made the case for why this state matters.

“Florida is checkmate,” the Virginia senator said. “Why don’t you change your name already from the Sunshine State to the Really Close Election State?”

Polls show Clinton up by 0.7 percentage points in Florida, according to the average.
