What is the Sunshine Summit?

The Sunshine Summit is a two-day event that will bring GOP presidential candidates, along with Florida’s state and federal elected officials, together in the most important swing state in the nation to address voters across the state. The Sunshine Summit will provide a platform for candidates to share their vision for the nation while discussing today’s issues facing the American people.

This two-day experience will give attendees the opportunity to hear from multiple presidential candidates and state leaders. In addition to these organized events, the Sunshine Summit will include breakout sessions where voters can greet and meet with candidates, state leaders and party officials.
