President Donald J. Trump’s campaign team is calling Saturday’s visit to the Iowa-Iowa State football game a triumph. The campaign said it collected another 2,250 signed caucus pledge cards, bringing its total up to 27,500 with five months yet to go prior to the Jan. 15 caucus.
The latest polling from Iowa shows Trump holding a 37-point lead over his nearest competitor. Trump has made it to Iowa seven times this year and his campaign has more than 1,000 Trump precinct captains.
In addition to Trump’s stops, he has had many surrogates visit the Hawkeye State — Congressman Wesley Hunt, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, U.S. Sen. Eric Schmitt, nine members of the Florida congressional delegation, Kari Lake and former Attorney General Matt Whitaker.
“President Trump’s Iowa team and outstanding army of grassroots volunteers have created one of the greatest campaign teams in Iowa Caucus history,” said Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung. “The numbers speak for themselves, from the on-the-ground activity to the 37-point lead in polling. It’s impressive.”
