"A real honor: You have been chosen: Trump supporters and our GOP of Venango Co. has been chosen for TV & media from the Trump Campaign & RNC to be televised for the Republican National Convention THIS THURSDAY. You are needed to help show a Thank you and Support for Pres. Trump for TV this same evening before the nomination speech. Highlighting Oil City & Venango Co. on national TV is a real honor, privilege & showing us to the nation can potentially highlight us for later benefits to our community. Come on to 215 Seneca St., OC, this Thurs and help show our Thank you and Support," the post read.
A spokesperson from the Trump campaign indicated Thursday night that was the intention, but that it did not happen. Venango County Republican state chair woman Martha Breene championed this event and was expecting they would be a spotlight location. She was extremely happy with the turnout with over 200 Trump supporters lining Seneca Street. Though Breene was disappointed the spotlight fell through she felt the event still reflected the support Venango County has for the president.
State Senator Scott Hutchinson got the crowd excited with chants of "Four more years," as he emphasized the direction the country was headed economically before COVID-19 hit. He assured the crowd that we will get through this and get the economy back on track if Trump is reelected.
