President Trump’s State of the Union address identified major accomplishments from his first year in office and rolled out a bold and unifying vision for the future of our country. The Florida GOP hosted over twenty watch parties across the state from Miami to Pensacola. Florida had the most attendees across the nation, over 600! That’s hundreds of grassroots supporters enthusiastically supporting the President’s agenda for the coming year.
And on top of great turnout for the State of the Union watch parties, on January 20th during the RNC’s National Day of Training, Florida held the most grassroots trainings in the nation, accounting for 20% of the entire nation’s performance. Of the Florida trainings reported, over 300 activists were trained with 255 of them being first-time volunteers! Our 2018 ground game builds on one of our most productive field efforts in history, which has already turned out more Florida Republican voters than any other non-Presidential year.
“At State of the Union watch parties across the state, hundreds of Floridians were overwhelmingly enthusiastic about what President Trump had to say. From college students to GOP activists and volunteers in attendance, the excitement around the President’s first year accomplishments and upcoming agenda were second to none. The President’s unifying message resonated with our state and Floridians are ready for Congress to work together and continue to move our country forward.” –RNC Spokesperson Taryn Fenske
