Democrats don't necessarily need retired Lt. Col. Amy McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot who rose to prominence thanks to a viral campaign ad, to win Kentucky's 6th Congressional District.

Ninety-three thousand people tried to get tickets for President Donald Trump's Make America Great Again rally on Saturday night in Richmond, Kentucky, but only about 10,000 seats were available, according to the chief executive.

Although it was fall break for students at Bath County High School Friday, there was no break in politicking, especially when it comes to a hotly contested congressional race.

"I do not believe the Democratic Party has all the answers".

Trump said Brunson was now back in the USA with his family and thanked Erdogan, adding that the two countries will likely "establish a terrific relationship". "I think on the local level we tend to hang on to more of the traditional democratic values". I'm humbled by that, it means a lot to me and I appreciate that. Former Vice President Joe Biden campaigned for McGrath on Friday night.

Biden III, the former DE attorney general known as "Beau" died of brain cancer at age 46 and led vice president Biden to not run for president in 2016.

Those close to Trump say Biden is the Democrat who worries the president and his team the most because they fear he could cut into Trump's working-class white support in several swing states, The Washington Post's Ashley Parker and Robert Costa reported.

During the formal program, McGrath recognized Biden's time in office with appreciation.

But critics of the President have said Trump and Republicans are only stoking division by painting their opponents as extremists, and have pointed to Trump and his supporters own violent rhetoric.

Prior to the rally, President Trump landed in Lexington around 5:35 p.m. and was greeted by Gov. Bevin and McConnell. Angela Ward and her husband Les journeyed from Chicago to Madison County.

Fischer said he received a list of animals that could be hunted, some of which required a trophy fee, according to the Statesman. The animals included a giraffe, leopard, impala, sable antelope, waterbuck, kudu, warthog, gemsbok (oryx) and eland.

However, one protester, who wished to remain anonymous, said there was a group of counter protesters present, one of whom flashed a white supremacy signal at her. "It's gotten much better". She was attending her sixth presidential rally.

"Even now, Biden told a campaign crowd in Kansas, a physical fight between he and Trump would be short and Trump would be on the ground".

On the inside of Alumni Coliseum, there was a concert-like anticipation setting in.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was spotted by reporters joining Trump in the President's limousine to ride over to the rally after greeting him on the tarmac. "It's like Mitch. Not everybody knows that Mitch is a great guy. There's something that happens to you when you grow up in Kentucky, I guess, right?" asked Trump.

"He refused to cave to the radical Democrats" shameful campaign of personal and political destruction, ' Trump said at a political rally at Eastern Kentucky University before he called McConnell to the mic. When it was his time at the microphone, the three term representative repaid the compliments.

"This president is a man of action".

"The only reason to vote Democrat is if you're exhausted of winning", he said. "It shows how important (Barr) is to the president and Congress". But it is clear that the race between Andy Barr and Amy McGrath is one of the races that Democrats and Republicans are closely watching.

When people head to the polls in November, he said the country "faces a simple choice".
