Local Republican leaders show support for former President Donald Trump at rally in Sarasota
SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) – Thousands of people converge on the Sarasota County Fairgrounds on Saturday. They were listening to what former President Donald Trump had to say.
What he had to say was largely what you heard during the election campaign last year. Talk about economics, election and all the rest. He had the huge crowd all inflamed.
Trump supporters say they want to see him run again in 2024. Many local political leaders are showing their support for the former president. A heavy downpour did not drive away the crowds of tens of thousands.
âThrough the rain, through the storm, you’re all here soaked because you believe in America,â said Rep. Greg Steube, a Republican congressman from Florida’s 17th Congressional District.
âLiving the American dream is what we are all fighting for here, for your children and grandchildren,â said Rep. Vern Buchanan, a Republican congressman from Florida’s 16th Congressional District.
“I think there is a strong desire to see President Trump run again,” said Christian Ziegler, vice president of the Florida Republican Party. “I think he started a movement that was really America First all along.”
