Trump heads to Ohio for rally, hopes to deliver victory for GOP candidate
ABC NEWS ^ | 8/4/2018 | Adam Kelsey

Nearly five months ago, President Donald Trump parachuted into a formerly deep-red congressional district on a Saturday evening for one of his signature campaign rallies and a last-ditch effort to protect a House seat that mere months earlier would have been unfathomable to think could fall into Democratic hands.

Tonight, the president may feel as if he’s come down with a bout of deja vu.

After his previous effort to stem the meteoric rise of now-Rep. Conor Lamb fell short in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District special election in March, Trump arrives here Saturday facing a similar task: preventing his political opposition from stealing away a district represented by its last GOP member for nearly two decades, as Democrats further seek to build midterm momentum.

I’ve watched almost all of his rallies starting with the primaries, and I’ll be here watching this one as well. The most interesting part of the rallies is the reaction of the crowds.

Meteoric rise of Lamb? LOL. Penn 18th district has about 35,000 more Democrats than Republicans - and Lamb won by only 755 votes. In a special election. He will lose the general.

The Pennsylvania case mentioned was the case of a charismatic young centrist 2nd amendment supporting Democrat veteran against a rumpled, old, phlegmy, "my turn" "low T" Republican straight out of a 1950s country club. Even President Trump can't save a hopelessly bad candidate.

The GOPE stepped in it again when they let Kasich’s butt buddy Tiberi fund attack ads during the Primary against the more conservative candidate. Tiberi is a COC bought and paid for Cheap Labor Express Whore and EVERYONE suspects Balderson is the same. Balderson barely won primary and now has the stench of RINO K-Sick, Tiberi and the COC all over him.

Now Trump has to come in to clean up K-Sick’s, Tiberi’s and COC’s cheap labor Express COC mess. Trump has to try and get Balderson elected despite the stench on him.

And....I will watch it on TeeVee.

I know he won’t say anything new, but I seldom get bored watching him. He is so fricking entertaining! There is no politician alive or dead (since 1950) who can duplicate skills president Trump has in attracting very large crowds to 100+ rallies and keep them loving every minute of it.

Keyboards are not expensive to replace. Even for a laptop, you can buy a keyboard which has a USB cable. I have replaced keyboards in past simply because there was too much food debris clogging them and was too much work to clean it all out.

My laptop has a bad key and I use another unused key (there are a few duplicate keys on every keyboard) using a free program from Sharpkeys.

No one skedaddles out of a Trump rally (party) early! The best free entertainment you can find on a Saturday night. As someone else on this thread said, just watching the crowd’s “feel good jubilation” is entertainment in itself.

If only they would quit dubbing music over the introduction of President Trump. I want to hear the crowd reaction.

Even the 3 hours we waited in line to get inside the venue was entertaining! The people in line were very friendly, and the few dozen protesters were being out booed by the Trump supporters in line. Funniest people in the line close to our position were a few Hispanics yelling all kinds of anti-Mexico slogans. It was very entertaining 5 hours we spent and it was free!
