GOP din­ner moves to Mi­ami in­stead

Orlando Sentinel - - LOCAL & STATE - By Steven Le­mon­gello

Pres­i­dent Trump is not go­ing to Dis­ney World.

The 2019 Repub­li­can Party of Florida’s States­man’s Din­ner, for­merly sched­uled for Dis­ney’s Coron­ado Springs Re­sort on Nov. 9, was abruptly post­poned last month amid re­ports of party in­fight­ing and money trou­bles.

The party did not re­veal where in Mi­ami it would take place. State Chair Joe Gruters did not re­turn a re­quest for com­ment.

The event will be closed to the me­dia.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to Pres­i­dent Don­ald J. Trump join­ing Florida Repub­li­cans as we close out a great year of build­ing a uni­fied front in a crit­i­cal up­com­ing elec­tion year,” De­San­tis said in a state­ment.

Gruters said De­San­tis “is lead­ing the charge for Florida Repub­li­cans to de­liver his­toric wins in
