but she makes a surprising move before it gets started. >> out of ideas on what to get for valentine. we have a few suggestions that you want to hear this in a few minutes. welcome on this friday. thanks for joining us. donald trump is bringing his presidential campaign to tampa. the lines are long getting into the sun dome. and evan axelbank is out there live less than an hour away taking the stage, you know fayetteville donald trump is famous for his rallies. the doors opened. you have thousands inside and more are lined up.
see a bit. be here at the sun dome the lines go all the way around the sun dome itself. there are people waiting to get in the doors are open. they are excited. and now trump according to the people here has given many of the people hope that is the main thing i'm hearing that i have been spoking to. and they believe that about now. they say for eight years during the presidency. trump has given few specifics, they like his vote on border troll and the fight against isis. several people here have said they don't off -- love the vulgaritys. they want that toned down and
are here anyway. >> i'm very excited. i come from the east coast. >> why did you make a long trip, i want to see trump. >> he is the only one that can straighten the country out. >> what he is speaking is dangerous, homo phobic t is going back to the past where we do not. >> there was a heated moment with a group of protestors, the protestors came right in line next to the supporters they started hitting a pinata of trump and that he is racist and preying on fears. several law enforcement got very close just in case anything went south but everything and everybody turned out to be okay
one thing going on as the campaign gave out. >> and to sit during the rally. it is very full. you have many more thousands of people hoping to get in by the time the rally starts but if there are not enough people, sorry if there are not enough seats there may be people waiting here outside who didn't get a chance to get in. there could be people turned away and disappointed. by the way we'll stream the speech when he takes the stage on our web site at fox 13. >> so stay tuned for that. >> thank you. developing right now in polk county. memberrings discussing the future of the district there a short time ago the superintendent who has been under fire submitted her resignation. an investigation found that kathryn leroy may have crossed
we go to ken suarez. >> they are listening to comments about kathryn leroy from educators, member of the public and others. one thing is clear she was contentious, she submitted her resignation, that's in the wake of an investigation that took months to complete and ended up in thousands of pages of documentation. it centered on a relationship between leroy and gregory rivers, staffer. kathryn leroy had done nothing illegal but crossed a line professionally. now many members of the community said she has to go no matter what. that would be discussed but she submitted the resignation. she skirted the issue. one of the outwoken critics is next to me. this is dr. wendy bradshaw. what do you think about this? >> i think it is a disappointing situation we're in all the way around in polk county but she
positive steps forward t is just and in the public eye of an institution you are held to a higher morale standard. fie they'll even though she was cleared of legal wrongdoing that there is still that perception of professionalism and credibility that you have to maintain and she lost that credibility when all of the allegations came out. some of them were is a lacous but -- salacious and she had unprofessional -- difficulties with management and there were a lot of problems going on in the office that we didn't know about until this happened. >> and the bottom line is this, they have to vote on accepting the resignation, it probably will happen. and what compensation she will be given at this point it is $230,000. >> back to you.
