It’s Trump vs. Jimmy Buffett as Florida enters campaign push

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump and Margaritaville king Jimmy Buffett faced off as the Florida Senate and gubernatorial races hit the final weekend of campaigning.

Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson and the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, appeared Saturday at a free West Palm Beach concert with laidback singer Buffett before more than 1,000 people. Buffett lives in Palm Beach and is an outspoken environmentalist.

Trump will appear Saturday in Pensacola with Gov. Rick Scott, who is challenging Nelson, and former Congressman Ron DeSantis, who is running against Gillum.

Trump campaigned for Scott and DeSantis on Wednesday near Fort Myers as both races appear tight heading into Tuesday’s election.

Buffett lives in Palm Beach and is involved in numerous environmental causes.
