Trump supporters gather on Market Street Bridge

MARK NANCE/Sun-Gazette Supporters for President Donald Trump hold a rally on the Carl Stotz Bridge as traffic passes by and honks Friday evening. The event was organized by Lycoming County for Trump 2020.

Supporters of Donald Trump took advantage of late afternoon rush hour traffic to urge people to vote for the incumbent President.

Assembled along the Market Street Bridge, some held Trump signs while others yelled enthusiastically to passing motorists.

Chants of “four more years” could be heard among the supporters, who waved and flashed Trump signs.

Beeps and honks from passing vehicles offering support headed north and south across the bridge.

Trisha Hamilton came to the rally with her son, Kason, and father, Dave Hamilton, to the event.

“We are here supporting Donald Trump,” she said. “We are going to make America great again.”

She found out about the rally on a Facebook page and arrived about a half hour early for it.

Hamilton, who has attended previous Trump rallies, stood on the walkway of the bridge waving a sign: “We Love Trump.”

Rich Wright, coordinator of the Lycoming County grassroots movement for Trump, called Friday’s event, a flash rally.

He said the momentum for getting behind Trump is in place.

“We are just pushing it along,” he said.

Wright’s son, Uriah Shaffer, of Williamsport, was also in attendance.

With a laugh, he said of his father, “He raised me right.”

James Clark, of South Williamsport, said he felt good about being out among others sharing his political views.

He said Trump brings the values of honesty, integrity and pride to the office of President.

Like Hamilton, he has attended previous Trump rallies.

Wright said his group plans to hold Trump rallies of some kind each week.
