Republican presidential primary front-runner Donald Trump appears headed to Pensacola in the new year.
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is set to visit Pensacola next week, according to WEAR Channel 3.
The controversial candidate, known for his off-color remarks against Hispanics, Muslims, veterans, and the disabled, will be visiting the 10,000-seat Pensacola Bay Center in downtown Pensacola on Wednesday, January 13th. The date falls just about one month before the Feb. 9, first-in-the nation presidential primary in New Hampshire.
In August, Trump visited Mobile, Ala. with a crowd of more than 20,000 showing up to hear the candidate speak. Trump would be the second republican candidate to visit Pensacola during the 2016 election cycle. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush held a campaign event at the Bay Center in August last year attended by a few hundred supporters.
Vernon Stewart, spokesman for the City of Pensacola, told Channel 3 News, “the city and county are working together to coordinate the event.”
No details have been released on the time or how to obtain tickets to the campaign event.
The Trump campaign released its first television spot today. The spot reinforces Trump’s position of banning all Muslims from entering the United States.
