President Trump makes his case for four more years at Jacksonville campaign rally
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - From near and far, thousands made their way here to Jacksonville Jetport and waited hours for President Donald Trump’s arrival. Included in the sea of red sitting behind me, is one republican leader from North Central Florida.
The sounds of shouts, screams, chants and claps welcomed President Trump as all watched his arrival on Air Force One.
Outgoing Congressman Ted Yoho was one of many Republican leaders who got a shout out during Trump’s speech.
“You look at the crowd that’s here, these are people that I like,” said Yoho. "He said, he goes, ‘I’m fighting for you.’ and we’ve been around when he said, ‘I don’t need to do this.’ he goes, ‘but I love this country so much and I’m fighting for the American people’ and he means that.”
Hailing from all corners of the country, one North Central Florida woman says she got the best seat in the crowd.
And it was well worth the wait for Katherine Snyder, a Gainesville native and Bucholz graduate who has watched every rally this campaign season.
“We’ve been waiting for weeks for the rally here and you know we couldn’t be more impressed with what he’s doing for education and for bringing things and businesses back online after the cover crisis,” said Snyder. "We have to get back to work, back to school and back at rallies like this to support our president.”
The days are counting down until election day in November TV20 will keep you updated not only on national races but North Central Florida as well.
