Former President Donald Trump will bring his signature rallies back to the Florida community where they first began. The Save America PAC will hold an outdoor rally at the Sarasota Fairgrounds on July 3, beginning at 8 p.m.

“We are thrilled to be hosting President Trump as he launches out on his next voyage to continue making America great,” said Joe Gruters, Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida. “We played an important role in his election and we want to show our support for his strong leadership as President.”

Gruters, now a state Senator, served as Florida co-chair to Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016. Because of that, Trump’s state headquarters for most of the 2016 cycle was located in Sarasota.

The Fairgrounds were also host to Trump’s first Florida rally after he declared for President, helping lead to his primary win in the state the following spring. The locale also served as site to Trump’s last Florida rally that year, held just before he won the state’s electoral votes on the way to winning the presidency. Party leaders were excited to see the former president return to the grounds. “This is a huge win for Sarasota and the Republican Party,” said Jack Brill, Acting Chairman of the Republican Party of Sarasota County. “This once agains shines the spotlight on Sarasota and all we’ve accomplished here.”

In 2020, Trump failed to win reelection, losing to Democrat Joe Biden. But the Republican incumbent did win Florida’s electoral votes. He’s teased a potential third run in 2024.

“Over the past four years, my administration delivered for Americans of all backgrounds like never before,” Trump said in a statement. “Save America is about building on those accomplishments, supporting the brave conservatives who will define the future of the America First Movement, the future of our party, and the future of our beloved country. Save America is also about ensuring that we always keep America First, in our foreign and domestic policy. We take pride in our country, we teach the truth about our history, we celebrate our rich heritage and national traditions, and of course, we respect our great American Flag.”
