The state of Florida has braced itself for Spencer's appearance, too. Ahead of the alt-right leader's oration, Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency on Monday and activated the state's National Guard, according to NBC affiliate WESH-TV in Orlando.
The heightened security comes after a rally in Charlottesville, VA, wherein Spencer was involved, turned violent and a woman was killed.
