Pennsylvania was Trump country in 2016. The question in 2019 is, will Pennsylvania deliver the votes for a Trump victory in 2020?
In the match-up between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016, Trump won the state by more than 44,000 votes. The contest turned out to be 48.2% to 47.5% in favor of Trump. With the additions of Wisconsin and Michigan, Trump broke through the blue wall previously responsible for Democrat wins in presidential elections in recent years. The combined margin of votes in favor of Trump in all three states totaled 77,000. So, it was tight in these big states, but he won.
Trump has no intention of losing any of those three states to the Democrat nominee in his bid for re-election. It’s still really far out from election day but his campaign team is lining up a strategy to win re-election even if he loses one or all three of them. With this in mind, President Trump traveled to Montoursville, Pennsylvania to campaign for a Republican running to represent the state’s 12th District. A special election is scheduled for today, the result of Rep.Tom Marino vacating the seat. Trump campaigned for Republican Fred Keller who is running against Democrat Marc Friedenberg.
“There is a crucial election,” he said of Tuesday’s special election before turning to his 2020 reelection bid: “I’ll be here a lot. … Got to win this state.”
“Get out tomorrow. It’s a little bit of a referendum,” Trump said, appearing to refer to his own presidency. “Go get ‘em Fred.”
