Amid fears of violence, Florida governor declares emergency ahead of Spencer speech

Spencer to give his Nazi speech in TalahasseeGov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency as hundreds of law enforcement officers from across the state gather at the University of Florida in advance of a Thursday event by white nationalist Richard B. Spencer.

Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell had asked Scott to declare the emergency as the university prepares for Spencer's visit. The governor's executive order places the state agency usually responsible for hurricanes at the front of the effort to preserve order during the event. It also places the Florida National Guard on standby.

Anti-fascist groups, known as Antifa, plan to protest the white nationalist event. Both sides have talked on social media about using violence.

"I find that the threat of a potential emergency is imminent and hereby declare a state of emergency in Alachua County," Scott wrote in an executive order he signed on Monday.
