“President Trump has delivered for Nevada creating 125,600 new jobs since his election, including 16,800 new manufacturing jobs and 24,400 new construction jobs,” wrote Michael Glassner, Chief Operating Officer of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. “President Trump looks forward to celebrating this success and more with the great men and women of Nevada.”, according to the Reno Gazette: https://www.rgj.com/story/news/politics/2020/02/15/trump-rally-supporters-las-vegas-next-week/4772971002/
Do you suppose President Trump will stay in the Presidential Suite of the Trump Tower in Vegas? Here is one penthouse suite, three bedrooms, about 3,000sq ft., and goes for about $1500/night. the view is right up the strip. Here is the bathroom. Not bad, eh?
You know how campaigns are often limited in their sign sizes? And we all know how expensive it is to buy billboards during campaigns, right? Well, how about this TRUMP sign, strategically placed at the end of The Strip?
Somehow, Bernie and Bloomberg just don’t have the same kind of presence in Nevada as Trump does. Hmmm…… In a BRILLIANT move to save funds and unify the party, the Nevada Repub Comm cancelled their caucus in February over a year ago. Effectively, all NV delegates will go to Trump for the convention, according to the Reno Gazette. https://www.rgj.com/story/news/politics/2020/02/15/trump-rally-supporters-las-vegas-next-week/4772971002/
The timing for this westward campaign swing is extremely tight as his schedule is packed. AFTER the Phoenix Rally, the President flew back to Vegas. Thursday, Trump will speak at the Hope for Prisoners graduation around 11:30 a.m., then head to Colorado Springs, Colorado, for a 5 p.m. rally. White House confirmed that Trump would speak at a graduation ceremony at Metropolitan Police Department headquarters Thursday for Hope for Prisoners, a Las Vegas program that helps ex-inmates re-enter society, a signature issue for the president, per the Las Vegas Review Journal. https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/nevada/president-trump-to-hold-rally-in-las-vegas-next-week-1958412/
After the Colorado Springs Rally, The President flew back to Vegas for a rally at the Vegas Convention center at noon…… and then back to DC.
In the afternoon, VP Pence will rally in Reno, following the campaign strategy of deploying heavy hitter Trump officials to a state for key events. Barnstorming the state is a good use of assets and the officials, when they travel together, have begun to look like a travel team for a sports league. Whoever came up with the idea deserves a raise. VP Pence event is scheduled to start at 1:15 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21 at the Atlantis Casino and Resort, 3800 Virginia St. in Reno. Per the Reno Gazette Journal.
Back in Vegas, the President’s rally is at high noon (3:00pm Eastern time), the day before the Nevada Caucus for the Dems. The rally will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center in a room which only seats 2,500 people, according to The Hill: https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/483246-trump-to-hold-rally-in-nevada-day-before-states-caucuses
Currently, for the Dems, Bernie is in the lead, followed by Biden, then Warren (who lost her voice earlier this week).
Trump lost Nevada to Hillary in 2016 by about 2.5 points. Nevada would be an easy get. In Colorado, Trump lost to Hillary by about 136K votes, and Gary Johnson got 144K. These states are close and doable for 2020. Especially with an egomaniac candidate like a Bloomberg, or a crazy socialist like a Bernie. Did you KNOW the Culinary Union in Vegas specifically rejected Bernie’s Medicare for All proposal…….. they LIKE their healthcare.
- With the Larry Ellison fundraiser in Rancho Mirage, CA.
- The rally in Phoenix for McSally and AZ
- The Graduation Ceremony for Prisoners in Vegas
- The Rally in Colorado Springs with Gardner
- Rally on Caucus Day in Vegas
The President’s western swing has been most profitable and noteworthy.
It’s Vegas, unlike any other place on earth.
