The Secret Service said that more than 57,000 people showed up for a rally for Trump at the Pittsburgh-Butler airport. The local newspaper estimated the number at 10,000. It hardly matters. There were a lot of people there, as the Democratic Lt. Governor John Fetterman tweeted out.
The President is popular in PA.
I don’t care what polls say.
With 700K ballots still out there, you need to BANK YOUR BALLOT.
Use a Dropbox.
Get them in. https://t.co/YANdwqbdYG

Other Democrats apparently accused Fetterman of having swallowed MAGA propaganda.
“She is with Politico,” Fetterman tweeted, referring to Orr. “This is not MAGA propaganda. Can’t fake a crowd like that. But you *can* make sure you show up and get every vote in. Every Vote Matters. Get Them In. That’s not photoshop. That’s a @Reuters image of Butler. The Battle for Pennsylvania, and maybe the Presidency will be won or lost by you.”

This is incredible! Butler, PA is a small rural town 40 miles north of Pittsburgh with mostly blue collar residents. Their population is around 14,000, yet they drew over 50,000 at yesterday’s rally. Tuesday should be very interesting, especially in PA. pic.twitter.com/oNbrIt6mgk

“We are going to win the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and we’re going to win four more years,” Trump said. “They’re back there. You can’t even see the end of people. There’s a lot of people here.”
