Hundreds attended a 'Bikers for Trump' rally in Edgewater, Florida on Saturday, in support of the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump ahead of the Florida primary on March 15. The demonstration was staged on the sidelines of the annual Daytona Bike Week which is hailed as one of the largest motorcycle gatherings in the world.
One biker present at the rally endorsed the Republican candidate by stating that "he’s going to do what he has to do to beef up our security." Trump’s stance on topics like radical Islam, immigration and his support for veterans has made him popular among the biker community. "We don’t need to feed anymore people that we can’t feed ourselves," said another biker.
On Tuesday, 99 Republican delegates are up for grabs with Trump going up against Marco Rubio in his home state. Florida is known as a key state in the election campaign, with a reputation of being home to the most important swing vote. If Trump does defeat Rubio, it would effectively signal the end of the Florida senator's campaign, leaving Trump and Ted Cruz to battle it out for the GOP nomination.
