ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – As of April 6, 2017, members of the Orange County for Trump campaign have launched the Orange County (FL) Trump Republican Club under a charter approved by Blaise Ingoglia, Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida. Locally, Orange County Republican Party Chairman Lew Oliver and Orange County State Committeeman Paul Paulson, Republican candidate for Florida Agriculture Commissioner, signed in support of the Charter Agreement. “The Trump movement was and is powerful,” said Randy Ross, President of the Club. “We wanted to maintain the energy of the past one and half years in an organized way clear through to 2020.
