President Trump will be in Tampa this evening, as part of a campaign rally for Ron DeSantis, who is running for Florida governor in 2018.
The rally will be held on Tuesday, July 31st (today) at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, starting at 7pm; doors open at 4pm.
The president "is expected to address the latest record-breaking jobs and economic data from the booming Trump economy, his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and the importance for Floridians to get out and vote this fall for key races to support his agenda; including to support Rick Scott who is running to defeat [Bill] Nelson in the U.S. Senate, Matt Gaetz for re-election to the U.S. House, and Ron DeSantis for Governor," Trump's campaign said.
Trump is also expected to hold a White House event on workforce training, an initiative he's shared with daughter Ivanka Trump. Last week, the president signed an executive order on job training.
Expect traffic to be heavy in the area around the fairgrounds all afternoon, and plan to avoid the US 301/MLK intersection if you don't want to get caught in the gridlock.
Many supporters have been at the fairgrounds since yesterday, and camped out overnight so they could be among the first allowed inside the rally. If attending, expect strict security measures, and allow extra time for traffic, parking, and security screening.
