Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin made stops at a rodeo and a strawberry festival in Florida on Sunday to help drum up support for Donald Trump, whom she endorsed for the Republican presidential nomination in January. In the town of Arcadia, Palin attended the rodeo, posed with holding a rifle, and staged a photo-op with a group of Wild West-reenactors known as the Arcadia Rodeo Shootout Gang. “[Trump]’s the only one not part of the problems we’re facing today,” Palin told the crowd according to the News-Press.
After the rodeo, Palin headed to the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City where she met and posed with local residents, promising attendees that there would be “huge backlash” if Trump failed to get the Republican party nomination. “We’ll rise up,” she said, “and it’ll be a healthy thing for democracy.”
Meanwhile, Trump held a rally in Boca Raton, where he touted his Florida credentials before before launching into an attack on Florida senator Marco Rubio. Trump is holding a rally at the Tampa Convention Center on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s crucial winner-take-all primary in Florida, in which the winner will take home all of the state’s 99 delegates. On Monday, Palin canceled a campaign event for Trump after her husband, Todd, was injured in a “very serious” snow machine crash in Alaska that reportedly has him hospitalized in intensive care.
