The GOP front-runner Donald Trump has decided to cancel a scheduled rally in Florida on Monday night and plan a crucial rally in the state of Ohio as Super Tuesday is right around the corner.
Many are speculating that Trump may feel that Florida is in the bag and needs to concentrate his efforts on the state of Ohio. Others are saying that Florida might be lost to Sen. Marco Rubio.
From The Hill:
Trump was planning to hold an event Monday night at Trump National Doral. Instead, the candidate will hold a “massive rally” in Youngstown, Ohio, according to the campaign.
If the candidate is successful on Election Day, Trump will hold a celebration at Doral after the election.
Trump will be in Boca Raton, Fla., Sunday night and in Tampa on Monday.
Trump is in a tight race with Gov. John Kasich for a win in the Ohio primary on Tuesday. Kasich leads Trump by 2 points, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls. Kasich has 35.3 percent, compared to Trump who has 33.3 percent.
In Florida, he is ahead of rival Marco Rubio by a larger margin of 18.1 points, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls.

Proof that Youngstown is still relevant: Clinton, Sanders, Kasich, and Trump all visiting the Valley right before the election.

Trump adds Youngstown rally at Youngstown airport on Monday. Is hitting Kasich hard on TPP trade agreement.

At last check, Trump was ahead comfortably in Florida, but it seems there was a dog fight in Ohio. Trump has been hitting Ohio Gov. John Kasich very hard on his support of NAFTA in the TPP.
If Kasich were to lose Ohio, his presidential run would most likely be over. We all know if you lose the state you are from you are toast.
