Downtown Paducah in front of the transient boat dock Trump supporters fly their flags.
The Trump Train Caravan is a group of patriotic citizens showing their support for President Donald J. Trump. The event has spread across the country with the show of support by waving American flags, Trump flags, decorated cars/trucks, signage, and red, white, and blue clothing.
In downtown Paducah, The Trump Train Caravan filled the parking lot in front of the transient boat dock on the floodwall river-side down from the Paducah/McCracken Convention Center. As the caravan began to form their train, horns were blowing, flags were flying, and supporters (for the most part) remained in their vehicles.
McCracken County isn't the only county in western Kentucky forming Trump Train's on Saturday. Ballard County began their day at 8 a.m. with plans to join McCracken County residents in their support of President Trump.
In Murray (Calloway County) Kentucky, a Trump tailgate rally was held at the Cheri Theaters. Headed by U.S. Congressman James Comer residents were asked to bring lawn chairs, decorate their vehicles, invite family and friends, and wait for a special message to be delivered. This event started at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Now more than ever, Trump supporters are taking to the streets, meeting at town halls, and spreading the 'get out and vote' message. The election is only 8 days away and early voting is still ongoing, as well as mail in voting. In some counties, ballots are already being calculated.
According to recent news reports, the U.S. Postal Office is working hard to keep up with all of the ballots to deliver the mail in a timely fashion. The hope is that all will run smoothly and every vote will be counted. Since in-person voting is available, you may feel more comfortable casting your vote at your polling location.
Kentucky early voting is October 13 through November 2, except on Sundays. For those voting by mail, postmarks need to be marked by November 3. The General election is November 3. Voting hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
