In Florida, Governor Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency in Alachua County ahead of today’s scheduled speech by white supremacist Richard Spencer at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Thousands of people are expected to attend protests aimed at preventing Spencer from speaking this afternoon. Richard Spencer was one of the headline speakers during the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August, where the white nationalists and neo-Nazis killed one anti-racist protester and injured dozens more.
