Washington - GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence says he and Donald Trump "will absolutely accept the results of the election" and "the will of the American people" on November 8.

Pence tells NBC's Meet the Press that the country has a tradition of "the peaceful transfer of power". But the Indiana governor says "elections always get pretty rough" and he expects that's how it'll be right up until Election Day.

And Pence is pledging that over the final weeks of the campaign, "we're going to work our hearts out against all odds".

Pence also is accusing the media of having an "obvious bias". He says that bias is what's behind Trump's claims of "a rigged election".

Meanwhile, Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine is using his Spanish skills to try to reach out to Florida voters.

He talked about the importance of voting during a Sunday stop at Pneuma Church in Miami. It's an evangelical church.

The Clinton campaign says Kaine's speech is the first delivered fully in Spanish to a Spanish-speaking church by a candidate on a presidential ticket.

Kaine encouraged the crowd to register to vote and head to the polls on Election Day.

Florida's voter registration deadline was extended to October 18 because of Hurricane Matthew.
