ST. LOUIS – President Donald Trump will come back to Missouri next week after canceling a previously scheduled rally.
The president canceled a “Make America Great Again” event in Cape Girardeau due to Hurricane Florence’s impending strike along the Carolina coast.
The event was to act as a campaign rally for Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley.
Trump won Missouri by 18 percentage points in 2016. McCaskill has been a top target for Republicans seeking to expand the party’s slim 51-49 edge in the U.S. Senate. She is among 10 Senate Democrats up for re-election this year in states where Trump won and is considered among the most vulnerable incumbents.
The president has planned a heavy schedule of campaigning and fundraising through the Nov. 6 midterm elections.
Trump’s new rally is scheduled for Friday, September 21 at the JQH Arena in Springfield, Missouri.
