WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – It will be President Donald Trump vs. Margaritaville ruler Jimmy Buffett as the Florida Senate and gubernatorial races hit the final weekend of campaigning.

Trump will appear Saturday in Pensacola with Gov. Rick Scott, who is running for the Senate, and former Congressman Ron DeSantis, who is trying to replace Scott.

Meanwhile in West Palm Beach, Democratic incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson will appear at a free concert with laid back singer Buffett. The party’s gubernatorial candidate, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, had been scheduled to attend but left the campaign trail Friday to return to his city following a fatal shooting at a yoga studio.

Trump campaigned for Scott and DeSantis on Wednesday near Fort Myers as both races appear tight heading into Tuesday’s election.

Buffett lives in Palm Beach and is involved in numerous environmental causes.
