Donald Trump's campaign is putting together plans for a rally at the Tampa Convention Center Saturday. Among those expected to join the presumptive nominee for the 11 a.m. event in Tampa are Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, and Republican National Committeewoman Sharon Day. Look for an endorsement from Dena DeCamp, president of the Florida Federation of Republican Women.
Details on how to obtain tickets have not yet been released, though it is usually through eventbrite.com.
Tampa Convention Center director Rick Hamilton said the campaign has booked the east hall on the third floor of the convention center, but Hamilton assumes that, as in the past, it will need some additional rooms as well. Trump held a rally at the Tampa Convention Center in a room that fit only about 1,000 people on March 14, the day before he overwhelmingly won Florida's presidential primary. In February, he drew more than 10,000 people to a rally at the USF Sun Dome.
