GO TIME IN PA: Trump To Rally For Mastriano And Oz In Wilkes-Barre Saturday Night

Published on

Former President Donald Trump will appear at a Sept. 3 rally in Wilkes-Barre to help lift Republican candidates Mehmet Oz and state Sen. Doug Mastriano in their key midterm election campaigns.

The rally at Mohegan Sun Arena comes a little more than two months before Election Day in a race where both Oz, the GOP’s Senate nominee, and Mastriano, the party’s gubernatorial nominee, trail their Democratic rivals in polling and fund-raising.

A poll released by Emerson College Polling has Fetterman leading Republican Mehmet Oz 48% to 44% with 5% undecided and 3% supporting another candidate.

Trump’s Save America PAC announced the rally for “the entire Pennsylvania Trump Ticket,” on Friday. GOP congressional hopeful Jim Bognet, who is running in a rematch against U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright, is also expected to attend.

Trump announced the rally in an email from his Save America PAC while Mastriano was at an event with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in Pittsburgh, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Political action committees and national groups on both sides have said they will funnel millions into the Senate race in the state.

Speeches at the Trump rally will begin at 4 p.m., with the former president scheduled to give remarks at 7 p.m.

Wilkes-Barre is in Luzerne County, which swung from voting for Democrat Barack Obama in 2012 to backing Trump in the 2016 election against Hillary Clinton. Luzerne voted narrowly for Trump again in 2020. The Northeastern Pennsylvania region is considered one of the most critical parts of the swing state.
