If you are a Republican, Florida was the place to be during the past weekend.
It appears that some liberals were also begging for entry.
Former President Donald Trump delivered a speech in Tampa, Florida, at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit.

In his 90-minute speech, Trump succinctly stated, “We are a nation that in many ways has become a joke,” summarizing the dismal situation of the American leadership.
”He ridiculed climate activists, said ‘marxist teachers’ are brainwashing public school students and continued to call the press ‘the enemy of the people,” according to the Miami Herald.
Trump made fun of the congressional hearing that aimed to place the burden for the Capitol events on his shoulders.
The persecution of Donald Trump would stop right away if I announced I was not going to run for government, Trump said, adding “But that’s what they want me to do and you know what? There’s just no chance I do that.”
Republicans needed little encouragement as they head into the November elections, but The Sunshine Summit served as one for them on the east coast.
With President Biden’s approval rating falling to under 31% and 71 percent of Americans disliking his decision to run again, there are several opportunities for the Republican Party to pick up seats.
The Summit brought together influential people from all across Florida as well as well-known figures from other countries.
Governor Ron DeSantis, Senator Marco Rubio, and Attorney General Ashley Moody were the main speakers at the Florida meeting at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
The major summit for the state’s elections was decided upon in advance by Florida Republicans to be “invite only” for media.
The meeting appeared to attract more attendees after only inviting people who would report accurately.
The Daily Wire, The Washington Free Beacon, Americano Media, and Florida’s Voice were just a few of the publications that invited reporters to cover the event.
Reporters who were not invited but still wanted to attend the event criticized Politico’s Matt Dixon for tweeting a secret list of press approved for the event.
Campaign spokesperson Dave Abrams told The Daily Wire: “It’s funny that the very reporters who were uninterested in the Sunshine Summit were the same ones huddled in a corner across from the entrance hoping for a peek.”

“We aren’t bothered by their tantrums — in fact it validates our presumption that fair coverage was never a thought for them,” he added.
Governor Ron DeSantis remarked on the strategy to keep the gathering focused.
“I’m not going to have a bunch of left-wing media asking our primary candidates a bunch of gotcha questions,” DeSantis told a packed crowd on Saturday morning.
