Donald Trump once famously said that he “could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” Last night in West Virginia he tried out a get out the vote strategy only slightly less daring than that one.
“Now what I want you to do is save your vote,” Trump told the crowd in Charleston, West Virginia. “You know, you don’t have to vote anymore. Save your vote for the general election, OK? Forget this one, the primary is gone.”
At another point in the rally, Trump put a hard hat on. It’s a reason to talk about the Republican West Virginia primary.
