Trump Stumps For House Republican Candidate Dan Bishop At North Carolina Rally (VIDEO)

Trump held a rally in North Carolina on Monday night that served two purposes.

He was rallying his base for 2020, but he was also rallying supporters for Republican Dan Bishop, who is facing off on Tuesday against Democrat Dan McCready in a special election.

President Donald Trump traveled here on Monday for an election-eve rescue mission in a neck-and-neck congressional race — and to boost his own standing in a key 2020 swing state.

Trump touted Republican Dan Bishop, the party’s nominee in Tuesday’s do-over election in the state’s 9th District, calling on residents to vote “to stop the radical left.”

But Trump had his own reelection bid on his mind when he took the stage for the rally in the Crown Expo Center. North Carolina’s 15 electoral votes are critical for the president’s campaign for a second term; he won the state by less than 4 percentage points in 2016.

After recounting his 2016 election victory and his accomplishments after 2½ years in the White House, Trump stressed the importance of next year’s presidential race.

“We had a very, very special day in 2016,” he told the crowd of thousands early in a speech that lasted well over an hour. “It was very special, very special. … 2020 is essentially just as important, because they’ll try to take it away.”
