Despite on-and-off rainstorms all day yesterday and during the night, supporters of President Trump gathered to for tonight’s 2020 kickoff rally at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL:
The Fake News doesn’t report it, but Republican enthusiasm is at an all time high. Look what is going on in Orlando, Florida, right now! People have never seen anything like it (unless you play a guitar). Going to be wild – See you later!

It is “the mother of all rallies,” said a woman who traveled from Michigan for the big event:
"This is the big one. This is the mother of all rallies."
"I would sit here in the pouring rain"
"I think he'll go down as the best president in history. I really do."

The line to get in is already insane:
It’s 8 AM outside outside the Amway Center where @realDonaldTrump will hold the grand re-launch of his 2020 re-election campaign. The band is warming up and there’s a party atmosphere among those in the (very long) line to get in. pic.twitter.com/FA8rkNDtJT

But it’s not the crowd that should scare Dems. It’s that Republicans are organized this year and are already spending money to register new voters, including at the rally tonight:
