Bernie Sanders campaign schedules Florida organizational meetings

via @adamsmithtimes

The Bernie Sanders campaign's national campaign coordinator, Corbin Trent, is scheduled to attend a series of organizational meetings in Florida with local supporters Dec. 1 - 6. The meetings include Miami on Dec. 1, Fort Lauderdale on Dec. 2, West Palk Beach on Dec. 3, Orlando Dec. 4, Tampa Dec. 5, and Jacksonville Dec. 6.

Assuming he is still in the race by Florida's March 15 presidential primary - and just losing the Iowa caucuses in early February could doom his candidacy - Sanders supporters have their work cut out for them in the Sunshine State. The last two polls of Florida Democrats showed Hillary Clinton leading the Vermont senator by more than 40 percentage points.

Here's the tentative Florida schedule for the Sanders campaign:
