Trump to hold rally in Ohio in advance of GOP Senate primary
(Newsweek) -- Former president Donald Trump will hold a rally in Ohio later this month, less than two weeks before the state's crowded Republican primary for US Senate. The rally will be at the Delaware County Fairgrounds on April 23. Trump's team had sought to hold the rally at the Portage County Fairgrounds but was turned down by its board. Trump has yet to endorse a candidate in the race to replace retiring Republican Sen. Rob Portman. RealClear Politics shows businessman Mike Gibbons with a slim lead over former Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel.
