MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – With eight days to go until the Pennsylvania primary, a campaign office opened Monday for GOP front-runner Donald Trump. The office is inside the Twin Ponds West in Cumberland County.
The office was jump started by a grassroots group called Make America Great (MAG). Group leaders held a press conference Monday to celebrate the office opening.
“Together we are going to have the greatest grassroots ground game of any candidate in the state of Pennsylvania,” said Steve Johansen, Co-founder, MAG.
The press conference was more like a rally with dozens of Trump supporters holding signs and cheering. There were also several politicians there endorsing Trump, including Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11), Pennsylvania Co-Chairman of the Donald Trump for President campaign.
“Central Pennsylvania is going to play a critical role in determining the winner of the Keystone State, and the grassroots support for Donald Trump here has been incredible,” Barletta said. “The central Pennsylvania Trump volunteer headquarters will serve as an important resource for the Trump campaign as it works toward a victory on April 26.”
What happens at campaign offices? Volunteers answer questions, hand out Trump signs and recruit other volunteers who will meet at Twin Ponds West and make phone calls. The office is open 9 a.m. To 9 p.m.
