  • In the shadows of Trump and DeSantis Putnam campaign seeks relevance in final weeks of primary

In the Republican race to be Florida's next Governor, candidate Ron DeSantis is now on the offensive thanks to an endorsement by President Donald Trump.

"I want to thank our farmers".

Trump is set to rally supporters in Tampa on Tuesday for DeSantis and Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who is running for Senate.

"He's a balance - if nothing else, can we just have balance?"

The Trump administration announced a $12 billion farm aid package last week, prompting some farmers and farm-state lawmakers, including Trump's fellow Republicans, to criticise the move, saying they would rather trade with no tariffs than receive government help.

"I'm very anxious that the hostility whipped up by President Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt", Acosta noted. "It's OK. We can take it". "You know if you go out an buy groceries, you need a picture or a card - you need ID", Trump said to the crowd.

President Donald Trump is calling for voters to show photo identification at the polls, wrongly claiming that's already needed to buy groceries.




Republicans have called for sharper teeth on voting laws in the past years, while opponents say that would restrict the underprivileged from voting.

Trump also defended the denuclearisation deal he signed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in June in Singapore after reports surfaced that North Korea was proceeding with its missile programme.

"When he did this thing before successfully it was right close to the election", McManus said. DeSantis has campaigned with Fox's Sean Hannity and Donald Trump Jr. and uses humour in a new ad to show his alliance with the president, teaching one of his two children to "build the wall" with blocks.

Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., released a campaign ad touting the President's endorsement in a big way.

Two House candidates he backed - Katie Arrington in SC and Rep. Martha Roby in a runoff for her seat in Alabama - both won. You can only register as many as two tickets per phone number.

Trump held a rally in Tampa on Tuesday in a show of force for DeSantis, who faces off against state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the state's August 28 Republican primary.

For many, Trump's claim brought to mind reports of President George H.W. Bush expressing amazement upon seeing a supermarket scanner during his 1992 reelection campaign. But Trump nonetheless also briefly praised Scott, and criticized Nelson as an out-of-touch politician, saying he sees him in Florida only "five months before every election".
