in the vicinityVideo2020 Swing State: Florida
From now until the day of the election in 2020, all eyes are on Florida and 29 electoral votes—a state that a veteran Florida GOP strategist calls a “must-win” for President Trump.
ORLANDO-President Trump comes here tonight for a Make America Great Again-rally, where he’ll make it officially official: he’s running for re-election.
Although the event does not start until 8 PM Eastern time, about 100 die-hard Trump supporters up to 42 hours showed early, lined up on the sidewalk outside of the Amway center, sleeping in their tents overnight.
Tomorrow, thousands have shown, the wear Trump shirts, Trump hats, and beyond excited to be here. All of them are in the hope, among the 20,000 people that fit in the arena.
It’s no secret why trump Orlando has been chosen for this. It is in Florida and on the I-4 corridor that includes Tampa and Daytona Beach, and the purplest is the only region in the state. It is the way of Bush, It’s gone Obama, and in 2016, it was Trump, something about Hillary Clinton.
This year, Trump the state won, of just 1.2 percent. Florida, once again, the key to winning the presidency in the year 2020.

“Florida is really sort of the cornerstone of his campaign,” says Keven Wagner, head of the political science Department of Florida Atlantic University. “I think he realizes that. I think that his campaign people are realizing it. It is one of the reasons why Florida is the starting point for the re-election campaign, because it is hard to put together a coalition, which amounts to victory without Florida.”
Florida and its 29 electoral college votes have won a critical victory for the past two decades, back to Bush V. Gore, the Bush, with just over 500 votes.
Last November, Florida voters raised the state, the current Governor and junior U.S. Senator. Of the 8 million votes cast and a two-week, controversial tell, Republican Rick Scott beat race, incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson by only 10,000 votes in the Senate. In the gubernatorial race, Republican Ron DeSantis beat Democrat Andrew Gillum with 32,000 votes. Of the 8 million votes cast. Florida is just that close to that split, and much of a toss-up for the year 2020.
