BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Donald Trump supporters held a rally Saturday at the Mahoning County Republican headquarters in Boardman.

“We don’t have much time, but we are going to be calling people, sending out literature, putting out signs and trying to let people know to vote March 15th in the primary,” said Kathy Miller of Mahoning County for Donald Trump. “They’re helping today to get signs out in the community and just talk to other Trump supporters. People are really fired up over it.”

She says Trump’s outspoken comments are what people get upset about.

“That must be his personality. I certainly don’t have any idea why he does that, but he attracts a lot of attention and he has fired up people to get involved this year, and that’s good.”

Miller has no doubt that Trump will be on the ballot.

“We’re not worried at all,” she said. “We think he’s going to do really well and the country will be really surprised. I think he will be a great president…He’s never going to put his feet up on the desk at the Oval Office.”

Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown has a very different opinion. He believes Trump is not a good fit to be the leader of the country.

“It’s hard for me to think of Donald Trump as the Commander in Chief,” he said. “Prejudice and fear will not work for the general election, and I don’t think he’s good for the country in that way. I understand some people, a lot of people, are going to vote for him. I just think he’s not really qualified to be president.”

“I think if they sit back and look at where our country is and how is anyone else going to make a difference, I think we need someone with Mr. Trump’s energy, his enthusiasm, his background, the global business experience,” Miller said.

Voters will make the final call on March 15th, deciding who will appear on November’s ballot.
