Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Leesburg, Virginia this evening, his last of five Sunday events.
Trump will speak from the Loudoun Fairgrounds beginning at 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The rally can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
This will be one of Trump’s last rallies of the 2016 election. On Sunday, the Republican candidate held events in Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Why Trump is spending time in Virginia, however, is a bit of a mystery. After all, it doesn’t seem that he has any chance in the state, where Hillary Clinton leads by an average of 4.3 percentage points in Real Clear Politics’ polling average.
Trump has, however, had a history of visiting states where he stands very little chance of winning. Just a few hours ago, he also held a campaign stop in Minnesota, a solidly blue state where no Republican has won in over four decades and where Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump by 4.6 percentage points in Real Clear Politics’ polling average. During his Minnesota rally, Trump still said he’s confident he is going to succeed there and that the polls are wrong.
“If I don’t win Minnesota, I’m going to look real bad to those pundits that I do not respect very much,” Trump said.
Trump has another busy Monday full of campaign events; tomorrow he will visit Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and Michigan. His campaign has said that Trump will also hold events on Election Day itself, although none of these have yet been added to his official schedule.
