TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner in the quest for president, will be in Tampa Friday night to hold a rally in front of thousands of ardent supporters.
The rally comes just days after the New Hampshire primary, where Trump gained 35 percent of the vote and snagged 10 delegates.
The billionaire, who does not mince words in public, is expected to speak before a crowd at the Sun Dome at the University of South Florida. The event is expected to sell out, however, free tickets were still available as of Friday morning.
Those interested in registering for tickets can do so at Eventbrite.com or SunDomeArena.com. Tickets can be printed out or displayed on a mobile device.
USF warns people that registering for the rally does not guarantee entry, as the event is first come, first serve with a ticket.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the event is expected to get underway around 7 p.m. Parking is $20 per vehicle, cash only.
USF warns that traffic is expected to be heavy during the afternoon and evening on campus and in the surrounding area. Fletcher Ave, Fowler Ave and Bruce B.
