ORLANDO — It’s a family affair: Almost all of Donald Trump’s children, including 18-year-old Barron, will be Florida Republican Party delegates at the GOP presidential convention this year.

Leading the entourage to Milwaukee in July as delegation chairman will be Eric Trump. His big brother Donald Jr. and little sister Tiffany also were chosen as at-large delegates, along with stepbrother Barron, who’s graduating from high school this month. Trump’s daughter Ivanka is not a delegate.


Kimberly Guilfoyle, Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancée, was chosen to co-lead the party platform committee.

“We are fortunate to have a great group of grassroots leaders, elected officials, and members of the Trump family working together as part of the Florida delegation to the 2024 Republican National Convention,” Eric Trump said in a statement.

It’s not uncommon for family members of nominees to serve as convention delegates. Donald Trump Jr. was a New York delegate in 2016 and former President Bill Clinton was named a superdelegate to the 2016 Democratic convention that nominated his wife, Hillary Clinton, that year.

But the long list of Trump family members representing Florida at the convention highlights Trump’s near-total command of the state party less than a year after Gov. Ron DeSantis launched his brief presidential campaign.
