President Donald J. Trump is hosting a “Get Out the Vote Rally” in support of endorsed candidate Senator Marco Rubio in Florida. There’s a long list of Republican speakers, but one big name missing is Governor Ron DeSantis, who is also being pushed towards a possible future presidential run.
Speakers at the GOTV rally include Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Rick Scott, Republican Nominee for Agriculture Commissioner Wilton Simpson, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, Rep. Vern Buchanan, Rep. Matt Gaetz, Rep. Michael Waltz, Rep. Kat Cammack, Rep. Byron Donalds, Rep. Carlos Gimenez, Hialeah Mayor Esteban “Steve” Bovo, Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida Joe Gruters, and congressional candidates Cory Mills and Anna Paulina-Luna.
President Trump says he delivered a historic red wave for Florida in the 2018 midterms with his slate of endorsed candidates up and down the ballot and molded the Sunshine State into the MAGA stronghold it is today. He is hoping for a bigger red wave this year to flip Congress.
President Trump is going even further, stating that Florida is no longer a purple state and claiming it’s an America First Red State.
Polls have been showing Sen. Rubio leading Democrat Val Demings and Gov. DeSantis leading Democrat Charlie Crist. Some polling averages show Rubio leading by about 9 points and DeSantis leading by about 11 points according to reports.
With some of the Trump messaging and focus on Florida, it does raise questions about a potential Republican presidential primary between former President Trump and current Governor Ron DeSantis.
The Trump rally for Rubio is scheduled for 5:00pm at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition:
- 12:00PM – Doors Open
- 2:00PM – Special Guest Speakers Deliver Remarks
- 5:00PM – 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump Delivers Remarks
