Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Fort Lauderdale, Florida this evening, the candidate’s third event in the state over the past two weeks.
Trump’s event will be held at the BB&T Center beginning at 7:00 p.m. Eastern. It can viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
Florida is a key battleground state in the 2016 election, and as such, Trump has made sure to schedule several rallies there since becoming the Republican nominee. Last week, he spoke in Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, and both events were rather well attended.
Hillary Clinton is currently the favorite to win Florida in November, but the race is still relatively close. A recent Suffolk University poll has Clinton ahead by four points, while another poll from Quinnipiac University has the candidates tied. FiveThirtyEight, Nate Silver’s election forecast website, calculates that Clinton has a 78.9 percent chance of winning Florida.
Clinton herself recently held several rallies in Florida, heading through the state on Monday and Tuesday to talk about the Zika virus among other issues. Clinton made a stop in Fort Lauderdale last week as well.
Trump will stay in Florida on Thursday, when he will hold a rally in Kissimmee. On Friday, he holds two more events in another battleground state, Pennsylvania.
