Florida's Grim Reaper, aka lawyer Daniel Uhlfelder, is feverishly fundraising through his Remove Ron PAC to finance flying a plane over the Orlando hosting hotel for CPAC with a neighborly "Welcome Insurrectionists!" banner.

On Feb. 22, Uhlfelder took to Remove Ron's Twitter account to post, "Retweet if you’d like to see a 'Welcome, Insurrectionists!' banner fly over CPAC this weekend for Ron DeSantis, Trump, and the rest of the GQP to see."

Over 6,000 retweets and a fundraising webpage later, this scheme looks to be edging closer to reality, with a post late last night claiming that "a  quick $300" was left to go before this banner would be hoisted aloft in the Orlando skies.

CPAC begins today at the Hyatt Regency Orlando on International Drive. Watch the skies?
