<p>On Friday, all three network morning shows dutifully advanced concerns from Hillary Clinton&rsquo;s campaign that Hurricane Matthew could impact voter registration in Florida and touted the Democratic nominee&rsquo;s demand that the state&rsquo;s deadline for registration be extended to help her get more support at the ballot box in November.</p>

<p>During a brief political report on NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> amid the extensive storm coverage, correspondent Peter Alexander recited talking points from team Clinton: &ldquo;Matthew could potentially impact voting in the southeast. <strong>The Clinton campaign had requested that the voter registration date, the deadline of next Tuesday in Florida, be extended. But Florida&#39;s Republican governor there, Rick Scott, he is the chairman of the super-PAC supporting Donald Trump&#39;s campaign, said he has no plans to extend the voter registration deadline beyond next Tuesday.&rdquo;</strong></p>
