FOX 13 Tampa Headlines

Hundreds of supporters pack arena for Donald Trump rally

There were long lines of supporters lined up outside of Sarasota's Robarts Arena for a Donald Trump rally on Saturday.

Doors opened at 9:30 a.m. for the free campaign rally. It's the first Tampa Bay-area visit for the Republican presidential candidate.

Trump's rally is expected to begin at noon. He last visited Florida last month when he made stops before large crowds in Miami and Jacksonville.

The latest statewide poll shows Trump leading with 36 percent, followed by Marco Rubio, 18 percent, and Ben Carson at 15 percent. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was in fifth place with 8.9 percent.

According to FOX News, Trump has made some controversial campaign promises lately - including vows to monitor certain mosques, track Syrian refugees and bring back waterboarding.

FOX 13's Crystal Clark is at the rally in Sarasota. You can follow her on Twitter for live tweets of the event.
