Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale has said that Trump is going to put some blue states into play in 2020.
Apparently, they’re not kidding around.
Trump is going to hold a rally in New Mexico this month.
The Hill reports:
Trump to hold campaign rally in New Mexico
President Trump’s reelection campaign announced Friday he will hold a rally in Rio Rancho, N.M., on Sept. 16 as he tries to expand the electoral map before the 2020 race.
“We have seen an economic boom in New Mexico since President Trump took office. While President Obama lost 1,900 jobs, President Trump has added 34,600 jobs in the state,” said Michael Glassner, chief operating officer of the Trump campaign. “President Trump has delivered on his promises, and he looks forward to celebrating those successes with the great men and women of New Mexico.”
The rally will be held in the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, a multipurpose facility that says it seats about 6,000 for hockey and rodeos and up to 7,500 for concerts.
New Mexico, along with Nevada and New Hampshire, is a top target for the Trump campaign that allies believe the president can flip in 2020 after losing in 2016.
This is going to bring a huge crowd of Trump supporters.

President Trump coming to New Mexico later this month
President Donald Trump is holding a campaign rally in New Mexico later this month. The announcement has people wondering where New Mexico will fall on the electoral map in the election.
“As I talk to Hispanic voters, they’ve softened up towards Trump tremendously. After the last election, they still didn’t much care for him through 2018, but beginning this year, people saw the paychecks, those were increasing, the taxes were going down,” said New Mexico GOP Chairmen Steve Pearce.
The Republican Party of New Mexico and Pearce announced that New Mexico has officially been named a target state by the Trump campaign.
“That’s an official designation. That’s significant because it means that the campaign is going to designate more money for the state than the amount normally for any state,” Pearce said.
The Democrats are going to lose their minds over this.
