In Northwest Indiana, the factories are reopening, the Steel Mills are fired up and producing AMERICAN STEEL, and the railroads/coke plants. trucking companies and all of the industries that support them are hiring like MAD....
Wages are rising, while black unemployment is falling, and they can see more opportunity ahead than they have in DECADES under Democrat rule!! Trump should point this out, LOUDLY AND CLEARLY, with confirmed facts. There is still plenty of time to research them.
If done right, this could be the death-knell for the career of Donnelly, as well D rep Pete Viscloskey, a Pelosi backer and Uber Lib that has had the seat for DECADES, on the very edge of Chicago!.
They misspelled Larry [Sinclair].
Weak Obama...drag his sad ass out just like he did for Hill.
Ya done pal.
Donnelly is done.
Everyone Obama campaigns for loses.
[ Obama will appear in Gary ]
Oh, there’s an “r” in there.
Did anybody warn Gary?
The city or the guy?
In the late 50’s, my then husband wanted to move to Gary. I went there with him on a visit & couldn’t believe he was serious.
It was a complete smoked over crap of a place then. Nothing looked like it had ever been clean & it sure didn’t look like anything could clean it up.
I am very happy that the steel miles & other companies are back open. I am happy that people are working again & at good jobs. I wonder if Obama is going to try & take credit for all those jobs coming back?
But I am also happy I nixed his idea of moving there.
Kiss of death for Donnelly. With Os endorsement, hes guaranteed to be stomped in IN.
He must be desperate and way down in the polls. The Walking Dead in Gary wont be enough to save him.
You can take that to the bank. Say hello to Senator Mike Braun!
Since Trump recently visited southern Illinois, Obama should speak in Cairo and East St. Louis, to highlight the prosperity of Democrat-run cities.
I took a really lousy job in a small town in Kansas. The town is dying. The houses looked like they were mostly built in the 50’s and hardly ever upgraded (2/3 or so).
Seems there were always dirt stains on the sides of the houses, too. The wind blew up through there like crazy. And from the South.
[Nothing looked like it had ever been clean & it sure didnt look like anything could clean it up.]
That description reminded me of that. Still, I gave it a shot. It was doomed from the get-go.
I predict turnout in Gary will be 200% on election day.
Dont be so sure with 40% of blacks approving of President Trump.
The black vote wont save Donnelly. Not even with Os last minute call to the hood.
I worked in a steel mill out there one summer when I was in college, back in the 50s. One of my roommates came from there and got me the job. Great pay, but awfully darned hot!
Genesis Convention Center, capacity 6,000. But they can play tricks with the center seating, anywhere from 5,000 to 7,000 depending on how they set it up.
Actually in the 1950’s Gary was a thriving, vibrant community and the second largest city in Indiana. Yes, it was somewhat dirty but it’s a city built on heavy industry. The downtown had branches of all the big Chicago department stores and the housing stock was quite elegant in many parts of the town. Gary High Schools produced numerous great college and pro athletes. Of course then came the 60’s and white flight and well, it’s a good thing Obama will have plenty of armed Secret Service agents to protect him. Most of the current residents of Gary aren’t so fortunate.
Just the fact they felt compelled to send Obama to a Red State at the 11th hour is pure Hail Mary.
If hes the best theyve got, theyve got nothing.
Its better than New York or Rome.
Particularly when the candidate that Obama is campaigning for has spent considerable time trying to convince people he’s a moderate as opposed to a typical nut-job liberal Democrat. This surely won’t help that image.
Maybe Donnelly has been emboldened by the fact that Braun’s campaign has been for the most part so low-key as to be invisible, hence Donnelly’s “courageous” vote to believe the lying skanks who were trashing Kavanagh, and now dragging in Bonzo the Buffoon at the last minute? Why not Hillary too?
Excellent point. Donnelly has made a big deal of his “bi-partisanship” all during the campaign. Being on the same stage as the Obozo sure makes that claim somewhat dubious. Lake County is the bluest of blue in Indiana. If he’s gotta go trolling for votes there at the last minute Donnelly’s toast.
Not much point regarding Cairo, pretty much everyone there knows that the Muslim Ban is really bad news.
