Just hours before President Donald Trump rallies voters Wednesday for Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will appear in Central Florida to back Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum.
Sanders, who drew heavy support from progressive voters as he ran in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries, is scheduled to appear at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at the University of Central Florida’s CFE Arena in Orlando.
Then he heads to the University of South Florida East Gym in Tampa to rally alongside Democratic Lt. Gov. candidate Chris King and Attorney General candidate Sean Shaw. Doors open at 2 p.m.
Meanwhile, Trump will appear at 7 p.m. at Hertz Arena in Estero, with DeSantis on hand.
