Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Ocala, Florida on Wednesday, speaking to Floridians for the second time this week.
Trump’s event will take place at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion beginning at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
On Tuesday night, Trump paid a visit to Panama City, where about 7,000 supporters turned out to see the Republican nominee. He covered a variety of topics including Wikileaks’ recently released emails related to the Hillary Clinton campaign, as well as his current war against many within his own party including Paul Ryan. The House speaker recently said that he would not be campaigning for Trump any longer following the leaked Access Hollywood tape. In response, Trump spent a significant amount of time on Tuesday going after Ryan and, in an interview on The O’Reilly Factor, implying he would get rid of him when elected president.
“[Paul Ryan and John McCain] will be there,” Trump said. “They’ll be there. I would think that Ryan maybe wouldn’t be there, maybe he’ll be in a different position.”
Trump also said during that Bill O’Reilly interview that he is not sure he believes he is losing with female voters. In a recent NBC News poll, 69 percent of female voters said that Trump does not respect women.
Hours after Trump’s rally in Ocala, the Republican nominee will be holding another event in Lakeland. Florida is currently the most important state in the 2016 election in that Trump has no chance of winning without it. But according to Real Clear Politics, Hillary Clinton is currently ahead of Donald Trump in Florida by an average of 2.9 points.
Hillary Clinton also recently held a campaign stop in Florida. If she can successfully prevent Trump from winning there, she will almost certainly be elected president. On Tuesday, in fact, Clinton campaigned with Al Gore, who reminded Floridians that their votes are especially important.
“Your vote really, really, really counts. You can consider me as an Exhibit A,” Gore said, referencing the 2000 election during which George W. Bush won in Florida by just 537 votes.
