President Donald Trump is railing against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, saying it's time for Florida to vote him out of office at a Tampa, Florida, rally.

Trump has maintained a steady presence in the state, returning frequently to his winter home in Palm Beach. He says the only time he sees Nelson is "five months before every election."

He said at a Tampa rally on Tuesday: "After a while, you forget who's the senator."

Nelson is being challenged by Trump ally Gov. Rick Scott in a high-profile Senate race.

Scott didn't attend the rally but joined the president earlier at a roundtable event.

Trump says he wants to make sure Scott "wins and wins big."

The president delivered a hearty endorsement for Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis as he wades into Florida's competitive gubernatorial primary.

DeSantis faces off against state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the state's Aug. 28 Republican primary.

Trump praised DeSantis as "a tough, brilliant cookie" and predicts: "He's going to be your next governor."

DeSantis also made his pitch to the crowd and thanked Trump for his leadership.

Earlier, Trump told students and faculty at a Tampa technical school that there has never been a better time to develop new skills or get hired for a new job.

He pointed to strong economic growth and low unemployment at the event where he held a signing ceremony for a technical education law he signed earlier in the day at the White House.
