Trump to campaign in Ohio for mid-terms

October 6, 2018

LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — President Donald Trump is scheduled to make another midterm campaign appearance in Ohio.

Trump’s political organization announced Friday that Trump would hold a rally Friday night at the Warren County Fairgrounds in the southwest Ohio city of Lebanon.

The organization says Trump will discuss the “booming” U.S. economy and historically low unemployment numbers. He’s also expected to stump for Ohio’s Republican House and Senate candidates as the GOP tries to maintain its majorities in Congress.

Republican U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci (reh-NAY’-see) faces an uphill battle in his Senate race against two-term Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown.

Lebanon is roughly 32 miles (52 kilometers) northeast of Cincinnati.

The campaign says it’s Trump’s 24th stop in Ohio since he announced his presidential candidacy in 2015 and the fifth in the Cincinnati area.
