President Trump speaks in Central Ohio

Local News

President Donald Trump made a visit to to central Ohio — a state he won in the 2016 Presidential election — to the acclaim of his supporters.

“They said, ‘You cannot win unless you get the great state of Ohio.’ We got the great state of Ohio,” said Trump. He hopes that success in Ohio will help Troy Balderson win Ohio’s 12th Congressional District.

Equally, Troy Balderson hopes this Presidential push gives him the edge on August 7th. The crowd was excited to see President Trump stand with Balderson here in Ohio, and the Olentangy Orange Gym was full of supporters.

One of them was John Lamson of Akron who said this was the first time he’d experience anything like this.

“Having never done anything like this before, I recommend everyone do this at least once in their life time,” said Lamson. He added he was surprised and satisfied with what he heard. “Well it’s very uplifting and positive,” said Lamaon “His message is always on point.”

Doug Pannier lives in Lewis Center and said he walked away with a greater appreciation for this administration. “An unbelievable experience,” said Pannier. “I thought he was on top of things and learned some new things from him. He’s done a great job.”

The Olentangy Orange High School’s gym was at capacity, and there were even people watching the event on a screen outside.
