Donald Trump to Rally in Erie on Oct 10

Here’s Donny.

President Donald Trump will visit the Erie Insurance Area on Oct 10 for a rally.  

The Pennsylvania GOP confirmed the upcoming stop for the President in Pennsylvania’s 16th Congressional District to boost Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Butler) and other Republicans on the ballot.

“Donald Trump is coming back to Pennsylvania because he sees the Commonwealth living up to its namesake and being a Keystone in this election for the perpetuation of a pro-growth Republican agenda,” said Jason Gottesman, PAGOP Communications Director. “The President knows, just as we do at the State Party, that it is important to elect Republicans like Lou Barletta and Mike Kelly because they stand in stark contrast to Democrats who want to do nothing but obstruct and resist.”

Trump won the newly drawn 16th district by 20+ points in the 2016 election.

Both Barletta and Kelly have touted the Trump economy in campaign ads.  

Kelly’s Democratic opponent, Ron DiNicola has been critical of the tax reform bill in television ads and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has just invested $325,000 into the district. This was the first ad buy for the DCCC in Pennsylvania.

Kelly’s campaign sent out a press release expressing their excitement for Trump’s arrival.

“I am honored and excited that President Trump will be returning to Erie, a place that was critical to his election victory in Pennsylvania,” Kelly said in the release. “Under his administration, the American economy is winning again in every measurable way. The progress our country has seen over the past 20 months is incredible. President Trump understands that the mid-term election is essential to ensuring that his pro-growth, pro-family, pro-American policies continue.”

PoliticsPA is seeking comment from DiNicola’s campaign.

  1. Liberal Democrats BOB CASEY and TOM WOLF are running for Senate & Governor respectively. Casey / Wolf proudly supports “restructuring” or “abolishing” ICE, sanctuary cities, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, using taxpayer funds for illegal aliens & DACA. In addition, both are weak on border security and national defense.

    If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, amnesty r Please VOTE NO for BOB CASEY & TOM WOLF this November….we can’t afford anymore Democrats.

    Vote this election for candidates who prioritize citizens over illegal aliens (bet you thought that was a given …not anymore.) Those who oppose sanctuary cities, open borders, non citizens voting, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens and taxpayer funded in state college tuition discounts for illegals. That means NO Democrats. Democrats want to encourage, reward, protect illegal aliens with jobs, amnesty, drivers licenses, discounts for college tuition, scholarships, then after they’re here….protect them from deportation. This creates MORE illegal entry and the Democrats know this.

  2. The silent majority is silent because of the crazy, threatening democrats, but they can’t intimidate us in the ballot booth!!

    1. The goal for Democrats is to flood the country with illegal aliens & refugees and fight against / eliminate deportations.
      Notice how Democrats fight to the death against any voted ID laws.

      To Democrats programs like “Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) and “Temporary Protective Status” (TPS.) there is nothing temporary about these programs. To Democrats these are permanent programs with a false name to mislead the public…..and it worked. Once again Democrats have found and used liberal judges to stop these programs from deporting.

      Recent Gallup poll- almost 60% of Democrats now view socialism positively, little changed from 2010 survey.

      The current migration at our southern border is costing taxpayers a Kings Ransom. Fleeing persecution? or fleeing for freebies? they sure don’t stay in Mexico when they reach “safety” or ask for political asylum in Mexico. Why? because Mexico will give them NOTHING. So they make the long journey to our border, our generous Democrats and our tax dollars. Just debating DACA in congress is costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars….. thank the parents.

      Just a few examples of the more outrageous costs associated with illegal immigration, we will pass this burden on to our children and grand children as has been passed on to us.

      *The cost of educating illegal aliens children is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student. This does not include the billions spent on bilingual education for illegal aliens.

      *Taxpayers in numerous states are funding in state college tuition discounts for illegal aliens. Cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars annually.

      *30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.Does not include local jails and State Prisons. At $21,000 per year expense per inmate in Federal Prison U do the math.

      *$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate, process Illegal aliens in the Criminal justice system. I repeat 3 MILLION a DAY.

      *$2.2Billion dollars a year is spent on is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP (food stamps) WIC, & free school lunches.

      If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, non citizens voting, open borders, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, weak border security, tax increases. VOTE NO for ALL Democrats this November.

  3. Mike Kelly was one of our President’s first big Congressional supporters. Perhaps President Trump doesn’t forget things like that and wants to ensure US Rep Kelly remains in Congress instead of some sleazy criminal defense lawyer.

  4. Omg, the Anti Trump comments are hysterical. We are going to the rallies because we support our PRESIDENT ???????????????? Mike Kelly isn’t in trouble, he’s being supported by the PRESIDENT. I know that’s a hard concept for liberals to grasp. #WalkAway

  5. They are acting pretty nervous about an R+8 district.

    Apparently there are a bunch of people that travel around the country just to go to Trump rallies. I suspect there is a good bit of camaraderie, but it must also be nice to be around likeminded people who also enjoy naked, rabid cruelty. Then they don’t have to hide their bigotry like when they are in polite company. Either way, it would be interesting to do a survey of the license plates in the parking lot to see just how many are from Pennsylvania.

  • Understanding that basic education funding should/will be first, what should be the next highest priority for the General Assembly?

    • Legalizing Adult-Use Marijuana (24%)
    • None of the above. Something Else. (20%)
    • Economic Development (14%)
    • Higher Education (8%)
    • Public Transportation (8%)
