Donald Trump plans Miami swing as early as this week

Word's out among Miami Republicans that Donald Trump plans to campaign here soon, perhaps as early as this week.

It's unclear exactly when Trump would be in town. Karen Giorno, his newly named senior political advisor who has been heading Trump's Florida campaign, said details of the event are still in the works.

"He'll be coming back to the Miami region, probably next week," she said.

Two dates have been under consideration, July 8 and July 11, according to several local party members. It's also unclear if Trump would give a speech or hold a fundraiser -- or both.

Trump hasn't campaigned in Miami since October, when he held a well-attended, Friday-night rally at his Trump National Doral golf resort. He subsequently held a handful of events around the March 15 primary at his two other South Florida properties, Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter. Trump trounced the primary competition.

The presumptive presidential nominee last campaigned in Florida on June 11 in Tampa.
