ORIGINAL STORY

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- President Trump has had a busy schedule in the last week before the midterm elections which will end with his final stop at the Show-Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. It has been raining in Cape Girardeau most of the day. The crowd of supporters appears to be smaller than the crowd from the Southern Illinois Airport in Jackson County Saturday October 27. 

The president's rally, in support of Josh Hawley who is seeking to unseat U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, is scheduled to begin at 9:00 p.m. Doors to the Show-Me center are scheduled to open to the public at 6:00 p.m.

It has been a busy day for the president who had three stops scheduled for the day, starting in Cleveland, Ohio at 2:00 p.m. and then Fort Wayne, Indiana at 5:30 p.m.

We will update this story with more information as the evening progresses.
