Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Altoona, Pennsylvania this evening, his second event of the day.
Trump will speak from the Blair County Convention Center beginning at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The rally can be watched live through the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
The Republican candidate previously made a stop in Erie, Pennsylvania on Friday. Blair County, where Altoona is located, voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 by a large margin, 66.1 percent to 32.6 percent, even though Barack Obama won the state overall. However, Erie, where Trump’s previous rally was held, is much more liberal, with Barack Obama winning that city by almost 20 percentage points.
Hillary Clinton is currently ahead by quite a bit in Pennsylvania. According to Real Clear Politics, Clinton is leading Trump in the polls by an average of nine points. A recent NBC/WSJ/Marist poll has her ahead of Trump by 11 points, 48 percent to 37 percent.
Some Republicans have questioned Trump’s recent campaign schedule, which has seen the candidate making stops in blue states that he has little chance of winning. On Saturday, Trump will make a stop in Fairfield, Connecticut; not only is Connecticut overwhelmingly Democratic, but Fairfield is particularly left leaning, with Barack Obama winning the county in 2012 by 10 percentage points.
On Monday, though, Trump will return to a swing state when he pays a visit to Youngstown, Ohio.
