Trump Announces Get-Out-the-Vote Rally in North Charleston

Donald Trump in South Carolina 2024

Former President Donald Trump will hold a Get Out the Vote Rally Wednesday in North Charleston.

The event will be held at the Charleston Area Convention Center, and attendees are encouraged to register for the event on Trump’s campaign website.

Trump will have supporters from the Charleston County GOP.

“Republicans from all over the county are excited about the rally, and we’ve been inundated with inquiries about tickets,” Andrew Boucher, Chairman of the Charleston County Republican Party told The South Carolina Sun Monday. “Multiple officers from the Charleston Republican Party will be in attendance.”

Trump, who leads his only remaining primary challenger, Nimrata “Nikki” Haley, by more than 30 points in the polls.

Haley is the former Governor of South Carolina and later served as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations.

Saturday, Trump held a Get-Out-the-Vote Rally at Coastal Carolina University in Conway.

Coastal Carolina’s HTC Center was reportedly filled to capacity, with more than 3,000 attendees. Another several thousand gathered in the nearby overflow area.

“It was a circus atmosphere on the street, in line and in the arena. Many wore their allegiance to Trump on their hats, shirts and campaign buttons, some newly purchased from vendors along Highway 544 outside the campus. They waited for hours to enter, and gave a standing ovation when Trump took the stage to Lee Greenwood’s ‘God Bless the USA,'” according to My Horry News. 

During the rally, Trump separated himself from Haley on a major issue for voters: spending money to aid Ukraine.

“They want to give like almost $100 billion to a few countries, $100 billion,” Trump said at the Conway rally. “I said, ‘Why do we do this? If you do, you give them, not $100 billion, you give it to ‘em as a loan.’”

The U.S. House and Senate are debating a recently proposed a spending bill that would give $60 billion to Ukraine, and billions to other countries.

The South Carolina Republican Party’s Presidential Primary will be held on Saturday, February 24. Early voting begins Monday.

Meanwhile, Haley has said that supporting Ukraine is in the best interest of the United States.

This is bigger than Ukraine,” she recently said. “This is a war about freedom, and it’s one we have to win.”

Haley’s sputtering campaign attracted only about 10 attendees at a campaign bus tour stop in Newberry over the weekend.

As of January 31, Trump had $37,541,960 on hand compared to Haley’s $11,551,692, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records.

In December, notable far-left donor Reid Hoffman, the cofounder of LinkedIn, donated $250,000 to Haley’s campaign.
