Thrill ride inventor hosts Clinton fundraiser

Orlando – A local thrill ride inventor will host a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton that is expected to draw numerous supporters from the LGBT community. Bill Kitchen, founder of US Thrill Rides, will open his impressive Windermere residence to Clinton supporters on Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 2. Kitchen shares the waterfront home with his partner, CamiloEspinel.

Kitchen is the founder of U.S. Thrill Rides, and one of the visionaries behind The Skyscraper at SKYPLEX, the proposed “worlds’ tallest skyscraper” (with a rollercoaster) envisioned for International Dr.

“With the challenges we currently face, I firmly believe that Hillary Clinton is the best and most qualified person to be our next president,” Kitchen said of the former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State Clinton. “I want people to have the opportunity to meet her and hear what she has to say.”

In recent polling, Clinton appears to be a lock among Florida Democrats, leading Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders 54 percent to 23 percent. Florida Republicans currently favor Donald Trump (27 percent) over Ben Carson (19 percent), Sen. Marco Rubio (14 percent), Sen. Ted Cruz (10 percent) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (9 percent). In a general election, current polling indicates a tight race in Florida between Clinton and any Republican candidate but Trump.

“The Republican alternatives are frightening,” Kitchen says. “This is a good time for swing voters in Florida to make a decision to support Hillary.”

Contribution levels for the fundraiser start at $500. According to Democratic insider Bob Poe, the upcoming fundraiser will be a rare opportunity to meet Clinton in an intimate setting. For tickets contact Greg Goddard at
