Trump made the statement during a rally Tuesday night in Tampa, Florida, where he promoted the campaigns of two Florida Republicans ahead of the state's primary.

"After a while, you forget who's the senator", Trump said, adding that he wants to make sure Scott "wins and wins big".

In a new ad released Monday, Republican candidate for governor Ron DeSantis drives home his love for President Donald Trump - again and again, with humor.

Democrats "don't want to give Trump any victory", he said. And he also endorsed Governor Rick Scott for Senate.

Just a few months ago, DeSantis was way behind in the polls, but is now enjoying a lead, and in some polls, is leading over opponent and current AG Commissioner Adam Putnam.

The president referred to his efforts to get Congress to approve more funding for a border wall, and the prospect of a partial government shutdown in the fall over the issue.

While the reasons for the early arrivals are plentiful, many said they're there to show support for the president.

He also advocated for requiring voters to present photo identification, even though Florida already has such a law on the books.

"We believe that only American citizens should vote in American elections", he said.

"It's insane", he added, "but we're turning it around".
