Trump Supporters Start Lining Up Nearly Two Days Before Tuesday Night’s Massive Orlando Reelection Campaign Kickoff Rally

Supporters of President Donald Trump started lining up for his reelection campaign kickoff rally in Orlando, Florida around 2:30 a.m. Monday–just under forty-two hours before the scheduled 8 p.m. Tuesday start. Trump said Monday morning over 100,000 ticket requests have been made for the rally that is being held at the Amway Center which has a reported capacity of 17,000 to 20,000 depending on the seating configuration.

The rally will feature President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, along with Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence. The campaign announced on Friday it will be holding an all-day “45 Fest” tailgate party outside the Amway Center with giant screen TVs to accommodate an expected massive celebratory overflow crowd.

WKMG-TV reported the first Trump supporter arrived around 2:30 a.m. Monday:

 

…Eight Trump supporters started camping out Monday morning, with the first one showing up at 2:30 a.m. The rally is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Gary Beck, a Trump supporter from Panama City, was the first in line.

“There’s going to be a bunch of people, and it’s going to be pretty intense,” Beck said. “The electricity is going to be high. It’s time for America to get back on its feet and be made better than it’s ever been before.”

WDBO-FM reporter Darrell Moody reported on the early arrivers:

Street closures for Tuesday around the Amway Center have been announced:

Those planning to attend the rally should read the FAQ at this link posted by the Amway Center for the rally.

A voter registration drive will be held by a pro-Trump group outside the Amway Center Tuesday. Florida’s elections are decided by razor-thin margins, so groups such as this one see it as imperative for Trump’s reelection bid that every eligible supporter is registered to vote.
