NAPLES, Fla- Hillary Clinton is expected in Naples on Tuesday.

According to the political website, Politico, Clinton was expected to speak at a private event at the Ritz Carlton in Naples. The event is hosted by Fidelity Investments. 

Rodney Statham is one supporter who showed up in Naples. He drove from Lee County and he got drivers to "honk" for Hillary.

"That's why we are all here...to let her know the public is out to support her in whatever decision she makes," said Statham.

Supporters say they want the former first lady to return to the White House, but as President.
 

"It may be a red county, but we still have Democrats that vote and we all support her," said Mickey Gargan, Democratic Party of Collier County.

From the streets to social media, the former Secretary of State is getting plenty of support. The group "Ready for Hillary" has more than 136,000 Facebook followers. The page is designed to rally support for Clinton so she will consider running in 2016.

" I think she's a very strong woman, a great leader and has proven herself as Secretary of State,"
