President Donald Trump will hold a rally next week in Tampa as he seeks to build support for Republican candidates, including gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis.

Trump is scheduled to appear at 7 p.m. July 31 at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall, according to an announcement from Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.

The appearance will come about a month before Florida’s Aug. 28 primary elections.

DeSantis, a U.S. House member, is touting Trump’s support while battling state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.
