The Senator of Cuban originwho starts with a relative advantage over her Democratic opponent, Florida Congresswoman Val Demings, pointed out that South Florida voters “have seen what socialism, communism and Marxism can do and they are not going to lose this country” .
Trump had words of praise for Rubiowhich since 2011 occupies one of the two Florida seats in the Upper House, and highlighted the joint work they did during their mandate to toughen US policy towards Cuba as well as to reduce taxes.
The former president did not forget how the senator defended him during the investigation carried out by Congress on the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 electoral process and the possible participation of members of his campaign team in that plot.
“Marco Rubio is the candidate of law and order”asserted Trumpwho asked for the vote for him and for the other Republican candidates in Florida, where some opinion polls reflect an unavoidable victory for this party on November 8.
“They are going to re-elect Ron DeSantis as governor of his state,” the former president also said, who in this way seemed to put a cloth of cold water on the “tense relationship”as several US media have pointed out, that there is suspicion between Trump and the current Floridian governor, Ron DeSantis, who goes to his appointment to the polls on Tuesday as the favorite to be re-elected.
The previous night, Trump dealt a light blow to his former godson-in-law by calling him “Ron DeSanctimonious” during a rally in Pennsylvania. “Trump at 71%, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10%,” he said, reviewing approval ratings among hypothetical contenders for the party’s 2024 nomination.
DeSantis was not part of today’s rally at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition Center as he was on the other Florida coast carrying out campaign events, as part of his “Don’t tread on Florida” electoral tour that will conclude on Monday possibly in Palm Beach counties, where Trump has established his residence, and Miami-Dade.

They were joined by legislators such as Mario Díaz-Balart, Carlos Giménez, Vern Buchanan and Matt Gaetz, among other Republican congressmen from Florida who seek to renew their mandates this Tuesday and who are aware of what a “blessing” from Trump means within the electorate. of your party.
Trump won Florida in the 2018 midterm elections and repeated victory in this state in the 2020 presidential elections, although he could not claim victory in Miami-Dade County, a solid Democratic stronghold for the last two decades.
However, judging by the turnout of Republican voters in the period of early voting and by mail, higher than the Democrats, this county could fall before the so-called “red tide”, alluding to the traditional color of the Republican Party, which some predict will come in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
