Donald Trump will hold another Florida rally Nov. 3 in Pensacola
Florida Politics ^ | October 28, 2018 | Jacob Ogles

President Donald Trump will fly to Florida to rally voters here at least once in November days before the mid-term elections.

According to DonaldTrump.com, the president will be in Pensacola on Saturday, Nov. 3.

The website states he will be speaking at the Pensacola International Airport at 5:30 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

Trump already plans to host a MAGA (that’s Make America Great Again) rally in Fort Myers on Oct. 31.

Republican operatives say Fort Myers was selected for two reasons. First, Germain Arena serves as one of the largest venues in Southwest Florida, and second, energizing Republican voters in Lee and Collier counties provides a foundation of support for statewide candidates.

Notably, Gov, Rick Scott, who is challenging Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson for his U.S. Senate seat, will make one of his first campaign trail appearances since Hurricane Michael when he goes to campaign alongside Trump and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis in Fort Myers.

The Nov. 3 rally happens the same day Trump already plans to host a rally in Bozeman, Montana.

HCA Ocala

And indeed, Florida and Montana both host major Senate races this year, here between Scott and Nelson and in the Big Sky State between Democratic incumbent Sen. Jon Tester and Republican challenger Matt Rosendale.

Of course, Trump also has a particular interest in the Governor’s race in Florida, where his endorsement of Ron DeSantis played a role in securing the Republican nomination for the former Congressman. Now, DeSantis faces a hard fight with Democrat Andrew Gillum.

Polls show both the Senate race and Governor election as dead heats.

With the addition of another Florida stop, that makes 11 rallies the president plans to hold between now and Election Day, so this may be the last time Trump visits the Sunshine State before the mid-terms wrap up.

Dear Mr Trump: you are president. A rally is nice, but a well deserved indictment of Gillum would be a better present to FL.

Looks bad before an election, like a banana republic.

Dear Mr. Trump, your are President and I supported you then (2016) and continue to support you now. A rally is nice, but, REALLY--the strain that such events put on local law enforcement and therefore local budgets--just after a major hurricane....can you give me some of what you are drinking?

If this rally doesn’t do the trick, there is time for another one later.

Are they really going to hold it in the Pensacola Airport?

I have been there and don’t recall any auditoriums.

I arrived the day after the storm. Unbelievable destruction. Lives virtually destroyed. Trump and Pence visiting Lynn Haven was a terrible idea and shut a city in need of help down at a really bad time. The day Verizon was restored it was knocked out for half a day or better, twice. Traffic brought to a standstill for half a day or better, twice. Both visits brought an area to a complete standstill at a time it desperately needed action.

From 3+ decades iin local law enforcement I can tell you that Vice Presidential visits are a PITA and Presidential vistis are a PITA fueled by an Habernero/Ghost pepper enema.

Want to help after a disaster? Cut a check, hold a presentation ceremony in the Rose Garden but stay the F away.

Trump campaign right on the money....Fort Myers for south Florida & Pensacola for north west Florida. Outstanding move to protect 2018 Mid-Terms & 2020 position for POTUS re-election run. And...folks...do not give up on a campaign stop in the state of Michigan just yet.

Hints:

- Fort Myers, off I-75....close to Miami, Naples, Bonita Springs, Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Okeechobee, etc.

- Pensacola, off I-10......close to Tallahassee, Mobile, Alabama, Panama City, the Gold Coast, Escambia county, etc.

They usually do a hangar, don’t they? (when it’s an airport)

I was in some of the backed up traffic on hwy 77 that day, going to work. When I learned that the VP and SECAF came to see Tyndall AFB and declared that it would be rebuilt, the wait was worth my time. I was at TAFB on Active Duty for an extended assignment during my career. I know its importance to National Security and to the local economy, your grousing notwithstanding.

And I’ve been on presidential detail before. GWB at his ranch in ‘02. It’s all hurry up and wait.

That’s why you do it at the airport. The plane lands... the event happens... the plane takes off. Easy stuff.

I keep hearing this ‘timing’ warning. There is a law or there isn’t. There are violations or there are not. Does running for office provide immunity from the law? If so, I’m going to declare right now for the presidency and then go rob a bank.

And what if the SOB wins? He will be untouchable based on the conventional wisdom.
