Trump drums up support in OH ahead of special election

Republican House candidate Troy Balderson speaks next to President Donald Trump at a rally in Lewis Center Ohio on Saturday

He touted Balderson's record on crime and immigration and claimed that O'Connor, if he won, would be a "puppet" of Nancy Pelosi, who stands to reclaim the title of speaker of the House if Democrats seize control of the body this fall.

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally at Olentangy Orange High School in Lewis Center, Ohio, Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018.

But despite state GOP efforts to avoid referring to Trump, when all is said and done it is still the Party of Trump - and, on a historical basis, the Party of John Rowland, Lowell Weicker, and Jodi Rell. Troy Balderson, the Republican candidate for a U.S. House seat in a Tuesday special election, point blank why he invited Trump to campaign for him at his event in Delaware County. He tore into Waters, who is also black, and derided her as "an extremely low IQ person". He said journalists are "terrible people". "The President?' He said, 'No, I didn't, '" Kasich responded.

"I think [Trump and his political advisers] think they are firing up the base", at such rallies, added Kasich, who was among several establishment party leaders Trump defeated for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.




Trump relished playing the role of Republican kingmaker, bragging how the GOP candidates he's opposed, like Rep. Mark Sanford of SC, have lost.

Trump also brought to the stage OH congressman Jim Jordan, calling him "a tough cookie". Either Trump had confused Stivers with state Sen.

The plaudits came two days after Trump mistakenly urged Republicans to vote in the special election for a someone not on its ballot ― GOP Rep. Steve Stivers.

Accompanying the president's team aboard Air Force One en route to the rally is Hope Hicks, the former White House communications director.
