President Trump was in Missouri on Friday to throw his support behind Attorney General Josh Hawley in his bid to unseat Claire McCaskill.
Police tell me the JQH Arena May get to capacity. 11,000-plus expected at Trump/Hawley event in Springfield.

The crowd was so large that many had to be turned away.
During the rally, the President had positive words for Hawley:
“’We are finally putting America first,’ Trump told an ebullient crowd Friday night. ‘It’s all gonna start with Josh Hawley. We love Josh. He’s a star.’”
“Trump said that Hawley was needed “in the Senate to fight for Missouri” because the Republican party would “never get a vote” from McCaskill.”
The crowd was not as enthralled with McCaskill, though:
“Some of the loudest boos of the night were for McCaskill, who Trump declared ‘loves the swamp’ and will never cast votes to support him.”
Missouri voters are motivated to turn out this November and finally retire Claire McCaskill.
