Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, will stop in Tampa on Thursday where she will appear alongside former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and other local leaders.
The Trump campaign is calling the event a “political fireside chat.” Ivanka Trump will also be attending a fundraiser in Florida the same day.
“Florida holds a special place in my heart and I am excited to visit Tampa once again to support my father’s campaign," she said in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times. She last visited Tampa in 2018, when she accompanied her father during a signing ceremony at Tampa Bay Technical High School for a bill that reauthorized $1.2 billion in spending for technical education.
“The President has fought for Florida priorities, including combatting human trafficking, lowering prescription drug costs, increased access to childcare, cutting taxes for hardworking families and prioritizing our great military,” she added. “President Trump will continue to be a champion for the people of Florida in his second term.”
The visit by Ivanka Trump follows a string of high-profile campaign events in Florida as both sides hone in on the Sunshine State’s 29 electoral college votes. Last week, the president announced an offshore drilling ban in Jupiter, the latest executive action geared toward Florida voters.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, visited Tampa and Kissimmee on Tuesday while his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, spent last Thursday in South Florida.
