Donald Trump is hoping to maintain that advantage with a heavy investment in Florida, even though it doesn’t hold its winner-take-all primary until March 15. Trump’s team announced Friday that Joe Gruters, the vice chair of the Florida Republican Party, will serve as his Florida campaign chair, while Susan Wiles, who managed Gov. Rick Scott’s winning 2010 campaign, will serve as co-chair.
The campaign is also going to open a Sarasota office in early November 2015 at 1517 State Street said Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Gruters was instrumental in bringing Trump to Sarasota for the 2012 Statesman of the Year fundraiser, which packed the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota with more than 1,000 attendees in 2012.
The Sarasota GOP again honored the real estate mogul with the award earlier this year. Gruters, a local Sarasota CPA who is currently running for the state House of Representatives, said he is looking at high-viability location and decided on Donald Trump Campaign Headquarters at 1517 State Street Sarasota Fl.Donald Trump’s presidential campaign announced Friday, 10/23/2015, that it will open an office in Sarasota and that local GOP chairman Joe Gruters is joining the Trump team as the Florida chairman. “My message is clearly resonating in Florida,” Trump said in a statement. “We have tremendous support from so many great people in the state. I am proud to watch that support grow, to see our team expand and to be leading in the polls here.” The move is a big opportunity for the highly-ambitious Gruters that also comes with some risks. As Trump’s top man in Florida, Joe Gruters will be the face of a campaign that has rocketed to the top of the polls and is upending the GOP establishment.
Gruters said he expects to be intimately involved with all aspects of the Trump campaign in Florida and that the Sarasota office will be the state headquarters. “The opportunity to lead a campaign that’s in the lead and going to win is really incredible,” he said. The position will give Gruters statewide exposure and could create opportunities for him to advance in politics, especially if his candidate wins.
