Trump rallies in New Mexico in hopes of turning state red in 2020

President Trump rallied supporters Monday night in New Mexico — a state he lost to Hillary Clinton by eight points in 2016. The Trump campaign is targeting some unexpected states like New Mexico ahead of 2020, with the hopes of besting a Democratic candidate he can portray as too far left for the American mainstream.

“It’s been quite a while since a Republican won this state,” Mr. Trump told supporters, who greeted him with chants of “USA, USA.” ”I think we’re going to do great here. We’re here because we really think we’re going to turn this state and make it a Republican state.”

The president’s rally in Rio Rancho, in suburban Albuquerque, is the first stop on a three-day swing that will also take him to California for fundraisers expected to raise more than $15 million.
