Politico reports that Trump will visit the district to campaign for Saccone amid concerns over his fundraising and campaign
“White House political director Bill Stepien expressed displeasure with the progress the candidate was making on fundraising. Stepien said Saccone wasn’t raising enough money and asked for an update on the campaign’s progress in the days to come,” Politico wrote.
Trump will visit a manufacturing plant in the southwestern part of the state, though specifics are not yet available.
Trump’s visit will be part of a strategy that will likely include two visits from Vice President Mike Pence and visits from different cabinet officials according to Politico’s sources.
The special election between Saccone and Democratic candidate Conor Lamb will be held March 13th.
