TAMPA, Fla. — Ivanka Trump is made a stop in Tampa Thursday in support of her father, President Donald Trump.

The campaign confirmed earlier this week Ivanka Trump would visit the area Thursday to participate in a fireside chat with local leaders.

The event took place at noon.

"Florida holds a special place in my heart and I am excited to visit Tampa once again to support my father’s campaign," Ivanka Trump said.

Florida yet again is considered a battleground state with its 29 electoral votes up for grabs. Former Vice President Joe Biden brought his campaign to the Sunshine State on Tuesday, with stops in Tampa and Kissimmee.

The latest average of polling data shows Biden up 2.4 points ahead of Trump, according to FiveThirtyEight.
