She described herself as a “big fan” of former President Trump and DeSantis.

The parking at the Eisenhower Recreation Center was full, but not specifically for the Newsmax event. There was also a gathering of the Mustang Club, with about 50 cars taking up part of the parking lot. There was also a shuffleboard tournament, and as always, the pickeball courts were crowded.
