PENSACOLA, Fla. — President Donald Trump, who was also joined by Vice President Mike Pence, rallied conservative voters Saturday night in the Panhandle ahead of Election Night, just days away.
The president appeared before the crowd with Gov. Rick Scott, who is challenging Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Florida), and former Congressman Ron DeSantis, who is running against Democratic gubernatorial candidate and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.
He praised both Republican candidates, called Gillum a "radical socialist," and said Nelson never calls him to push programs that would benefit Florida.
Trump campaigned for Scott and DeSantis on Wednesday near Fort Myers as both races appear tight heading into Tuesday's election.
Likewise, Nelson and Gillum appeared Saturday afternoon at a free West Palm Beach concert with musician Jimmy Buffett before more than 1,000 people. In song, Buffett took musical shots at Trump and Gov. Rick Scott.
Pensacola's Escambia County, near the Alabama border, has a large population of active and retired military members and is heavily Republican. The party holds a 4-to-3 margin over Democrats, and Trump beat Clinton 57 to 37 percent there in 2016.
