SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – As the Republican Party made finals preparations for a massive Donald Trump event, Barclay Kirkland and fellow Trump supporter Lilo Hendrickson practiced their victory dance.
“We are ready to dance the night away,” Kirkland told WFLA. “We want to celebrate with all of the other Trump supporters!”
A large ballroom within the Hyatt Hotel in Sarasota on Ringling Boulevard is the backdrop for what Republicans are hoping will be a lively victory party. So far, organizers have received 3-thousand RSVP’s for Tuesday night’s event to watch the returns where Congressman Vern Buchanan will be in attendance.
Hendrickson told WFLA, “This has been one of the most divisive campaigns. I’ve had friends tell me to change my Trump shirt before I’m even allowed in their home.” Media from as far away as the United Kingdom and Japan are at this large-scale Republican watch party.
