A new report indicates that many Trump allies will descend on Iowa for the caucuses in order to gain public support and warn Democrats of what is to come.
According to The Hill:
President Trump’s closest aides and allies will barnstorm Iowa during the state’s presidential caucuses next week in a flex of his reelection campaign’s political muscle.
Five top Trump allies, including the president’s sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, will lead a group of more than 80 surrogates across the first-in-the-nation caucus state on Feb. 3. Other top surrogates will include Trump’s daughter-in-law and senior campaign adviser Lara Trump, senior adviser and former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle and Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale.
Hundreds of Iowa Republicans will also be speaking in support of Trump at caucus sites across the state, the campaign said.
Trump isn’t facing any threats to his political standing among Republicans in Iowa, and the caucuses are expected to be something of a coronation for his reelection bid. Two Republicans are running long-shot campaigns to oust him, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.). Neither is likely to put up a serious challenge to Trump’s claim to the GOP nomination.
Democrats face fierce competition in Iowa and the outcome is still up in the air, but Trump’s team will be there in strong numbers.
