UPDATE: President Trump Adds Maine Visit to Sunday Schedule; Campaign Stop to Follow New Hampshire Rally

(UPDATE at end) President Trump is not letting a moment go to waste as he campaigns for reelection. Turning what was supposed to be a day of (some rest) after three rallies on Saturday, the Trump campaign has reportedly added a follow-up visit to Bangor, Maine immediately after a 12:30 p.m. rally at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Londonderry, New Hampshire on Sunday. The New Hampshire rally had been the only campaign event scheduled for Sunday. Reports state Trump will land in Bangor at 2:30 p.m.

Trump is working to retain the second district electoral college vote he won by ten points in 2016 and perhaps boost Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in her tight reelection bid. Trump lost Maine to Hillary Clinton by three points. The RCP average has Joe Biden up eleven points in Maine.

The AP’s Jonathan Lemire reported via Twitter Sunday morning, “The FAA has advised that on Sunday, beyond a planned rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, that President Trump may also visit Bangor, Maine — part of the state’s second congressional district, which awards its one electoral vote separately and went for Trump in 2016”

Vice President Pence campaigned in Maine’s second district on Monday.

Bangor Daily News reporter Michael Shepherd reports it is not clear if a rally is being planned, “I’d caution the people assuming this is a “rally” that we don’t actually know what it is right now. There’s some indication that Trump could make an off-site visit. #mepolitics…his isn’t being ticketed or noticed like a rally, for example. #mepolitics”

The Bangor Daily News reports Trump will visit an apple orchard (excerpt):

“President Donald Trump will visit the Bangor area today as part of a late addition to his campaign schedule. He will land at Bangor International Airport at 2:30 p.m. and head to Treworgy Family Orchards in Levant, according to a source familiar with the president’s plans.”

The orchard visit was also reported to Rachel Maddow by a Twitter tipster, “@maddow Trump will be flying into Bangor, Maine, this afternoon, for a rally to take place in Levant, Maine, at Treworgy Orchards. Friends of mine just got kicked out of the orchards by the Secret Service.”
