President Donald Trump traveled to Springfield, Missouri, to stump for Republican Senate candidate Josh Hawley at a MAGA style rally as the midterm elections draw ever closer.

Trump made the Sept. 21 trip to the JQH Arena to help re-energize his voter base ahead of Hawley’s face off against Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill this November.
