(News Service of Florida) - After having to leave the campaign trail because of a diagnosis of COVID-19, President Donald Trump will hold a rally Monday evening in Sanford. Trump’s campaign Friday said the president will appear at 7 p.m. at Orlando Sanford International Airport.
Trump had been scheduled to attend a rally at the airport Oct. 2, but the event was canceled after he contracted COVID-19.
Monday’s rally will come a little more than three weeks before the Nov. 3 election, with Trump widely viewed as needing to win Florida if he is going to defeat Democrat Joe Biden. Sanford is in Central Florida’s Interstate 4 corridor, which is typically a fiercely contested region of the state.
