On Radio Times Wednesday, host Marty Moss-Coane was joined by Republican strategist with Quantum Communications, Charlie Gerow, who explained why Trump chose Pennsylvania as the site of the rally saying Pennsylvania “was the one that put him over the top. In the wee hours of the morning on November the 9th, it was the 20 electoral votes that actually put Donald Trump past the magic 270 numerically.”

President Trump will be commemorating his first 100 days in office by holding a campaign-style rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Saturday. 

Many media outlets have been critical of Trump’s accomplishments thus far, but the president’s April 29th event is sure to be a victory lap filled with die-hard supporters, eager to see the man they helped elect speak.

In the wee hours of the morning on November the 9th, it was the 20 electoral votes that actually put Donald Trump past the magic 270 numerically.”  When Marty asked Gerow how Pennsylvania’s Trump voters are feeling about Trump’s time in office so far, Gerow said that despite Trumps low approval rating over all, “the base is with him.”

Later in the hour, Marty was joined by political commentators Joe Watkins and James Peterson, who gave their perspectives on the Trump presidency.
