President Trump will travel to Pennsylvania next week for a rally ahead of the state’s special House election, his campaign confirmed on Monday.
Trump will head to Ambridge, a borough outside of Pittsburgh, next Wednesday in the weeks leading up to the March 13 special election between Republican Rick Saccone and Democrat Conor Lamb.
Last month, Trump traveled to Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District for an event billed as an official White House event, but said that he’d hold a campaign rally to boost Saccone. This upcoming trip to Ambridge will be right outside the 18th District.
Without mentioning Saccone by name, Trump’s campaign said that the rally will be an opportunity for the president to tout the economy and the GOP’s tax overhaul.
“As more and more businesses across Pennsylvania, and the country, report new bonuses, wage increases, and investments in our economy, this rally will be a great moment to celebrate the success of the President’s historic tax cuts, and look ahead to more great victories for the American people under the President’s fearless leadership,” Michael Glassner, executive director of Donald J. Trump for President, said in a statement.
