As Trump Kicks Off Reelection Campaign, Springfield Republicans Gather To Cheer

President Trump is announcing his campaign for reelection Tuesday night in Orlando. The Greene County Republicans are holding a watch party — one of many around the country. 


Danette Proctor with the Greene County Republicans said the watch party is one of eight in Missouri, but there are more around the country — all anticipating and celebrating one thing: Trump’s reelection campaign.

Proctor says she’s pleased with Trump’s presidency and believes what he’s done so far will lead Missouri Republicans to show up at the polls in 2020.

“I think just what President Trump has done in a short period of time by securing our borders, cutting out taxes, creating an economy that works for everyone. He has reshaped our judicial system and there are judges in there that protect life and conserve our values,” Proctor said.

According to the Missouri Secretary of State’s website, about 1.6 million Missourians cast their ballot for Trump in 2016, compared with about 1.1 million, who voted for the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. 

The watch party is at The Roost Bar and Grill’s Cox Road location at 6:30 p.m.
