As President Donald J. Trump vowed to “keep America great” at his re-election kickoff rally in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday night, some prominent local Republicans said they hope his campaign will help down-ballot GOP candidates.
“As a Republican who had to endure this painful session [with new Democratic majorities in the state Legislature] … if it means that Republicans show up to vote, then that’s great,” state Rep. John Hunt, R-Rindge, said. “And if we can get back in the House, and we wouldn’t have all of [these Democratic-majority bills] getting passed, that would be a good thing.”
