Donald Trump To Visit Fairfield

(CBS Connecticut) — Presidential politics is coming to Connecticut.  Republican nominee Donald Trump will visit Sacred Heart University in Fairfield Saturday night for a rally.

He will speak at the William Pitt Center at 7:30.

Trump made several appearances in Connecticut during the Republican primary, including one at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford April 15.

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Donald Trump will campaign in an unlikely venue: deep-blue Connecticut.

The Trump campaign announced that the Republican nominee will hold a rally Saturday in Fairfield.

The last time Connecticut went for a Republican presidential candidate was in 1988, when George H.W. Bush, a former state resident, captured it.

President Barack Obama won the state by nearly 18 points in 2012 and by 22 points in 2008.

Trump, who has vowed to compete in traditionally Democratic states, will make the appearance at a time when he has slipped in polls in several traditional battleground states as well as some Republican strongholds.

Southwest Connecticut, home to affluent suburbs of New York City, is prime fundraising territory. Trump often hosts fundraisers near rallies, though his campaign did not say if any were planned.
