Saturday in Tampa: a whole lotta Trumpin' goin' on

Trump and some superfans — namely Gov. Rick Scott and AG Pam Bondi — will perform at the Tampa Convention Center Saturday at 11a.m.

It's been almost three months since Donald Trump has paid a visit to the I-4 corridor. Last time he did, it was the day before Florida's presidential preference primary, a contest in which he cleaned up quite handily.

Now, he's the presumptive Republican nominee, and on Saturday he returns to Tampa to campaign for the first time under that title.

Undoubtedly, it'll be quite a show.

The rally at the Tampa Convention Center is set to begin at 11 a.m. Doors open at eight.

Tagging along at the rally will be Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi, both of whom have endorsed the billionaire real estate magnate.

Bondi has come under fire recently over allegations that her office choice not to join a New York State investigation of fraud allegations involving Trump University around the same time Trump donated $25,000 to Bondi's reelection campaign.

As we all know, his rallies tend to attract thousands. To ensure admittance, get your tickets here

One thing that may be of concern is the potential for punches to get thrown betwixt Trump supporters and detractors if things get heated as they have at Trump rallies in other cities. We hope to dear sweet baby Jesus that doesn't happen; that cool heads will prevail.

In other words, be safe and please don't be dicks to each other.
