MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. -- A presidential candidate has responded to an invitation from Martin County Commissioners to tour the St. Lucie River after it was coated in toxic algae blooms.
Commissioners sent letters to Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump at the end of July.
Hillary Clinton responded with a letter Tuesday saying residents have a right to clean waterways.
She will not be making a visit to Martin County herself, but will be sending someone on her behalf Monday, September 12.
That person, Carol Browner, is a former long-time administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency and native Floridian.
