Trump coming to Dayton the night before the election to campaign for Vance

Event will be at Wright Brothers Aero, site of previous Trump fly-in rallies.

Former President Donald Trump will campaign with Ohio U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Vance in Montgomery County on Nov. 7, according to a news release Wednesday night from the Vance campaign and Trump’s website.

The rally the day before the election will be at Wright Brothers Aero Inc., 3700 McCauley Drive at the Dayton International Airport, where Trump has held fly-in rallies before.

It is described as an hours-long event, with doors opening at 3 p.m., unnamed “special guest speakers” starting at 5 p.m., and Trump scheduled to speak at 8 p.m.

“No one in the world gets Ohioans fired up for Election Day like President Trump,” Vance said in a Wednesday evening news release. “It will be great to host him in Ohio again.”

Vance, a Cincinnati businessman and Republican, faces U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Howland Twp., in the race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio.

“Even San Francisco fraud J.D. Vance knows Ohioans aren’t buying his phony act, which is why he’s spending the last few weeks of the campaign leaning on his out-of-state allies to try to drag him over the finish line,” said Jordan Fuja, press secretary for Ryan’s campaign.

Trump will campaign for 16 candidates he endorsed, including Vance, according to the news release.

Tickets to the rally can be requested through Trump’s Save America website.

Democrat Ryan will also rally in Montgomery County, with a 6:45 p.m. appearance Thursday, Nov. 3, at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 82, 6550 Poe Ave., Vandalia. The doors open at 6 p.m. for the rally, which is open to the public.
