President Trump rallies support in Tampa

President Trump rallies support in Tampa

At a Make America Great Again rally in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday night, President Trump went off on a little tangent about the need for voter IDs.

Although Tuesday's campaign event covered some of Trump's favorite targets - the news media, tougher immigration laws, and even "Crooked Hillary" - Trump also stayed at least somewhat on message, returning several times to praise DeSantis and encouraging the crowd to support him in both the upcoming primary and November general election.

"You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card".

Polling suggests that DeSantis has overcome Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam's once-commanding lead, due nearly exclusively to the president's endorsement.

So how did Jeff Greene do at the Trump protest?

DeSantis is running against Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the state's August 28 GOP gubernatorial primary.

A handful of protesters gathered outside the fairgrounds expo hall in Tampa, Florida, to protest President Donald Trump's visit hours before his scheduled arrival.

"There's no doubt in my mind that an terrible lot of people at the Trump rally last night were Trump-Putnam voters", he said.

Scott didn't attend the rally but joined the president earlier at a roundtable event.

Ahead of the president's rally, the Democratic Governors Association released a statement that said, "DeSantis is the latest Trump wannabe catering to the fringe-far right while everyday Floridians wait to hear a real plan for Florida".

Mr Trump has asked for $25bn for his key campaign promise, a wall on the southern border.

"I'm not sure. I'm not sure why that matters, either", Ms Sanders said.

Trump's first expressed support for DeSantis in December and more explicitly endorsed him with a tweet in June, launching DeSantis past former congressman and Florida agriculture commissioner Adam Putnam in the race to replace two-term Gov. Scott. "A proud veteran. My great friend", Trump told a crowd of 10,000 supporters Tuesday night. Bill Nelson (D-FL), has also opened up a three-point lead over Nelson.

Luis Canino Mas, a 76-year-old Army veteran from Valrico, said DeSantis is like Trump because he is a "new face" with a "new mentality". "Cause the Democrats are not voting for what we want to do, and they're not voting and allowing our values to take place in our country".

The Florida gubernatorial contest is the latest GOP primary into which Trump has injected himself, having previously helped candidates in Georgia, Alabama and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections.
