On the Republican side, President Donald Trump is slated to make two campaign appearances to rally support for GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, U.S. Senate candidate Rick Scott, and the state’s GOP candidates.
Trump will headline a rally Wednesday at Hertz Arena in Estero, just outside Fort Myers, and on Saturday he’s scheduled to attend a rally at Pensacola International Airport.
“President Trump is expected to discuss the booming economy, his tough stance on immigration, free market solutions for health care, and more,” his campaign organization said in announcing the Pensacola rally. “He will also remind Floridians of the critical need to get out and vote for the GOP in the midterm elections.”
Trump’s Florida appearances are part of a series of rallies across the country in important states. That includes rallies scheduled this week in Missouri and West Virginia, which also have closely watched U.S. Senate races.
