Trump to make stop in Martinsburg

President will hold rally on Monday

MARTINSBURG — President Donald Trump will return to Blair County on Monday afternoon as he campaigns throughout Pennsylvania.

“The Blair County Republican Committee, Republican loyalists and volunteers have worked hard to help re-elect President Donald Trump. News of the president visiting Blair County for a rally on Monday is huge,” said Jim Foreman, Blair County’s GOP chairman.

“In 2016, Blair County turned out over 70% of registered voters and, of those, over 70% voted for Donald Trump,” Foreman said.

Trump spoke four years ago at an event at the Blair County Convention Center.

The president’s campaign confirmed that the “Make America Great Again” rally will be held at 4:30 p.m. Monday at the Altoona-Blair County Airport at Martinsburg. Gates will open at 1:30 p.m.

“For Donald Trump to return to Blair County, now as the sitting president, is momentous,” Foreman said. “The local energy for President Trump is off the chart and will be on full display Monday afternoon as he arrives on Marine One and speaks to our region about his re-election.”

Trump was leading a pair of rallies in battleground Florida on Friday, before casting an early ballot today in his adopted home state.

The president said he would be campaigning nonstop until Election Day, with as many as five or six rallies in the race’s final days.

Trump supporters can request two tickets per cellphone number for the local rally on a first come, first served basis.
