Donald Trump, former Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio are among at least six presidential candidates that will attend a summit hosted by the Republican Party of Florida.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabeee, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will also attend the Sunshine Summit, to be held Nov. 12-14.

The state GOP said other attendees will be announced soon.

The candidates will have an opportunity to address an expected 2,500 activists. Attending the summit is one of three ways candidates can qualify for the March 15 presidential primary ballot.

If candidates skip the summit, the can also make the ballot by paying the state GOP a $25,000 qualifying fee or by gathering at least 125 signatures in each of Florida's 27 congressional districts.
