Donald Trump to stop in Tampa ahead of FL primary

- With just one day to go until the Florida Primary, Republican front-runner Donald Trump will be holding a rally Monday at the Tampa Convention Center.

A day ahead of his arrival, former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) stopped by the Florida Strawberry Festival Sunday to greet Trump supporters and stump for the candidate.

According to the most recent FOX 13/Opinion Savvy poll numbers, Trump holds nearly a 20-point lead over his closest opponent for the GOP nomination in Florida, Sen. Marco Rubio.  New poll numbers will be released Monday night on the FOX 13 5:00 News.

Road closures downtown will be limited, but the Monday afternoon rally will result in the closure of Franklin Street in front of the Convention Center, starting at approximately 8 a.m.  The closure will be limited to Franklin Street in front of the Convention Center, from Channelside Drive south to Old Water Street.

Here are the details for the town hall event:

Tampa Convention Center
