VP Pence Says Campaign Looking For Alternative Locations For Tulsa Rally

Linkedin Share

Vice President Mike Pence has said that the Trump campaign has picked possible new venue for the president’s Tulsa rally, which is due to the fact that the demand for tickets and the number of folks who want to attend far exceeded expectations.

This, of course, is a good problem right now. It means the president is more popular than ever, despite the best efforts of the left to try and destroy his administration. The efforts by liberals to attack Trump at essentially every curve in the road has had the opposite effect of what they wanted. Instead of lessening support for Trump, they are strengthening it and charging up his base.

Seems like now would be a great time to try a new strategy, right? Democrats won’t though. They are bent on destroying him and getting revenge for 2016.

Here’s more on Pence’s statement from Washington Examiner:

“It’s all a work in progress. We’ve had such an overwhelming response that we’re also looking at another venue. We’re also looking at outside activities,” Pence said on Fox News’s Fox and Friends on Tuesday. More than 1 million supporters have requested tickets to the June 20 event, he said.

It’s not clear why the move is being contemplated. And Pence did not say what he meant by “outside activities,” though criticism is mounting that the scheduled indoor event could spread the coronavirus.

A source with knowledge of the issue said the new venue is the Cox Business Convention Center, a 310,625-square-foot facility in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma, which recently completed a $55 million renovation. The Cox Center is next door to the Bank of Oklahoma Center, the original venue announced by the Trump campaign on Friday. The venue could still change, however, the source said.

Pence went on to say that contrary to the reports of not caring about the spread of coronavirus, the campaign will be taking measures to ensure the safety of participants and attendees such as temperature screening, hand sanitizer, and masks. In fact, he noted that the reason they chose to have the rally in Oklahoma is because of how well the state has done in handling the COVID-19 pandemic.

The fact that this rally is so highly anticipated has to be making liberals both inside and outside of the government terrified of their prospects for winning the November election.

And yet, they will keep doing the same things they’ve been doing, which has only served to mobilize Trump’s base more than ever.
