Hundreds turn out to support Trump Impeachment

Tuesday evening, December 17, 2019, the eve of the historical vote in the
US House of Representatives to impeach the 45th president of the United States,
a crowd of 250-300 concerned citizens turned out in support of a yea vote.
The crowd marched to Rep. Ross Sapmo's office following the rally
at Munn Park in downtown Lakeland to urge him to follow the law
and not partisan party lines.

Read the Lakeland Ledger article published 12/19/19 here.
The Ledger report under estimated the crowd size and overplayed the partisipation
of Trump supporters — which actually numbered about a half dozen.



While Floridians attended rallies across Florida in shirtsleeve weather,
our friends in other parts of the country braved icy cold to show their support for the
impeachment of Donald Trump.

New website and online community announced to help us beat Trump here in Florida!
