Former President Donald Trump is planning a July 3 rally in Tampa as he seeks to recapture the political spotlight and remain the biggest force in his Republican Party, according to a tweet from a Washington Post reporter.
Word of Trump’s potential holiday weekend visit was first reported by Post reporter Josh Dawsey. Trump is also planning a June 26 event in Cleveland, according to Dawsey.
The Tampa Bay Times has not independently confirmed Trump’s plan to travel to Tampa Bay.
Trump, a Florida resident, frequently campaigned in his adopted home state during the 2020 presidential election and has made the state the backdrop to some of the most consequential moments of his political career. Trump launched his re-election campaign in Orlando, and his rally in Sanford last year marked his return to the campaign trail after undergoing treatment for coronavirus.
In February, Trump spoke at the Conservative Political Action Committee in Orlando.
