We Won! We Kept Seminole County Red!

Nice cover photo in the Orlando Sentinel of the Republican Party of Seminole County’s watch party Election Night.

It was a great night and we heard speeches from EIGHT of the Party’s winners. Congrats again to all ELEVEN winners!

The media have been gleefully running stories for weeks about how many thousands of young, progressive Democrats have moved into (high density housing in) Seminole County, confident that Democrats would vote against the very people that have ensured the cause of Liberty and our great quality of life in Seminole, which Republicans have led for two decades.

This Party and its army of hundreds of volunteers delivered that message to hundreds of thousands of voters (alongside the candidates delivering their messages to voters). Congratulations again to this clean sweep locally. Sincere gratitude to these amazing volunteers. Heartfelt thanks to our Republican political vendors.

— Linda Trocine, Chairman, Republican Party of Seminole County


Population growth gives Florida crucial swing state reputation

Seminole County GOP is engaging with voters to help keep Seminole County Red.

Meanwhile, Seminole County Republican Party is preparing for Trump’s visit on Friday.

“That helps us in Florida. That helps us in Seminole, and of course that helps the president,” Seminole County Republican Party Chairwoman Linda Trocine said.

She said this election is about safety and jobs, and supporters will be door knocking, holding phone banks, and hosting events to engage voters.

“He loves the American people. He wants us to be prosperous. He’s done so many things. He’s kept his promises, and he’s going to do a lot more for America,” Trocine said.

With Trump Rally Canceled, Florida Republicans Press On With Voter Outreach

Seminole GOP adjust quickly to cancelation of Trump visit to Sanford on Friday to concentrate on voter outreach and keeping the momentum going to election Republicans to office.

Despite the canceled rally, which was expected to draw several thousand supporters to Sanford International Airport, Trocine said her group will continue to push outreach and voting efforts.

“We have a great deal of enthusiasm,” Trocine said. “This election is about safety and jobs, and that’s what’s most important to Seminole County voters.”

Why Donald Trump is doing surprisingly well in Florida

Getting out and volunteer! It is making a big difference in getting people out to support Trump and Republicans down ballot! You can make a difference in this election, volunteer today.

On a sweltering Saturday afternoon, Joe Gruters and Linda Trocine, Republican party chairmen respectively for Florida and for Seminole County, were hunting for votes the old-fashioned way: by knocking on doors. Armed with an app that aggregates masses of voter and consumer data, they were targeting npas (no party affiliation) and persuadable Democrats in Lake Mary, a northern suburb of Orlando, and they were hitting their targets. A rangy, sandy-haired npa with a deep smoker’s voice handed the flyers back: “Don’t waste ‘em on me. I’m voting Republican straight down the ticket.” A Latino npa mowing his lawn enthused about President Donald Trump, as did a 50-ish Democrat watching a college football game in his garage. “We’re out there pounding the pavement every day,” says Mr Gruters. “We’ve knocked on more than 1.7m doors…while Joe Biden and his team are basically trying to win this campaign from their basements.”

How fast-growing Orlando Threatens Trump’s Reelection.

While not directly about Seminole County, but rather Orange County, the effects of Orange going from solid blue to deep blue is impacting us in Seminole
As the population swells in Orange, it’s also exporting Democrats to neighboring communities, like once-red Seminole County.“If you told me four years ago that Seminole would go blue, I would’ve laughed in your face. But it’s changing,” said Anthony Pedicini, a top Republican operative involved in state legislative races.“It’s spreading from Orlando into the surrounding areas. Just look at the highway system, it’s like a heart pumping blue blood in every direction from Orlando,” he said.Pedicini noted that Hispanic voters are not the ones driving the change in Seminole. “It’s suburban whites. We’re losing too many suburban women.”

Campaigns go virtual as they adapt Cornavirus

Linda Trocine, chairman of the Seminole County GOP, said virtual programs implemented by the RNC and the Trump campaign have been effective. But with her state opening up, Trocine said she was organizing a gathering, similar to drive-in churches or the recent boat parade of Trump supporters in South Florida, that would satisfy health concerns while still allowing for a public show of support for the president.

“I have a plan for an event in June that will respect social distancing and still get people together,” she said. “We’re adapting. We’re going to find away.”
