(NASHVILLE) — Monday evening, State Representative Matthew Hill (R-Jonesborough) welcomed President Donald Trump and Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Marsha Blackburn to Johnson City.
The highlight of President Trump’s visit was a rally at the Freedom Hall Civic Center, attended by thousands of Trump and Blackburn supporters — including Representative Hill and other Tennessee lawmakers. During the rally, the president re-energized the conservative crowd by sharing his message of job creation, tax cuts, and the importance of securing our nation’s southern border.
Trump’s overall goal was to engage Northeast Tennessee voters in an effort to help Blackburn defeat her opponent in the upcoming midterm election and better position Republicans to maintain control of the U.S. Senate.
“It was an honor to have President Trump and Congressman Blackburn visit our incredible community,” said Representative Hill. “I was excited to have them come to my district, and to hear them speak at their rally about the tremendous progress our country has made under conservative leadership. I know Congressman Blackburn will support the president’s agenda, and I encourage our citizens to stand with her and support Congressman Blackburn at the polls in November.”
