Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was back in the Pittsburgh area just days before Election Day.
People lined up early at a hangar located at Atlantic Aviation in Moon Township on Sunday night. Doors were set to open at 5 p.m. and the rally was set to begin at 8 p.m., but Trump arrived around 10 p.m.
The first challenge supporters had to overcome was the traffic, at times at a standstill miles away from the rally’s location.
Then there was the matter of waiting in line.
“I hear it’s about two miles long but that doesn’t stop someone that is determined,” said Sharon Smith.
“If I see him from the curb, that’s good enough for me,” said Tyler Tubbs.
As many as 10,000 were welcomed into the hangar, and thousands more were stopped at the gates.
“When we win on Nov. 8…we are going to drain…the…swamp,” the candidate shouted alongside the crowd.
