Former President Donald Trump will hold a campaign rally in Ohio next week, his first of many post-presidency events to support Republican candidates and the MAGA agenda.
“This Save America rally marks President Trump’s first of many appearances in support of candidates and causes that further the MAGA agenda and accomplishments of President Trump’s administration,” read a statement released on Save America PAC on Wednesday, June 16.
The event will be held at the Lorain County Fairgrounds in Wellington, starting at 7:00 p.m on Saturday, June 26.
According to the statement, the rally supports Max Miller, who Trump has endorsed for election in Ohio’s 16th Congressional District.
In a statement of endorsement released on February 26, Trump said Miller is a wonderful person who did a great job at the White House and will be a fantastic congressman.
Miller will run against GOP incumbent Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, who Trump said does not represent the district’s interest or their heart.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Miller said he is “excited to welcome President Donald J. Trump back to Ohio” and “honored to have the President’s endorsement.”
Miller also called on the Ohioans to come and join their MAGA event.
Trump’s latest statement realizes what Trump has declared that he plans to resume his signature campaign-style rallies in some battleground states this summer.
“We’ll be doing one in Florida, we’re gonna do one in Ohio, we’re going to do one in North Carolina,” Trump said in an interview with One America News (OAN) in May.
The Ohio Democratic Party on Wednesday also released a statement saying, “Trump spent 4 years betraying Ohio workers & now that our economy is back on track thx to Dem leadership, Ohio families are looking forward not back. The only Ohioans a Trump visit will help are the GOP candidates who can save on travel expenses to FL to kiss his ring in person.”
In the 2020 election, Trump pulled all of Ohio’s Electoral College votes, winning the state by more than 475,000 votes—an eight-point lead to current President Joe Biden, according to WKYC.
