Former President Donald Trump’s rally Saturday night in Florence, Ariz., was an attempt to add a distinctly MAGA tilt to the midterm election season.
But for the thousands of his most faithful followers — some of whom traveled to the rally site at Canyon Moon Ranch from neighboring states — it was a chance to imagine and push for the former president’s own attempt to regain office. Attendees called for Trump to run again in 2024. Many doubted he was truly ousted from the White House in the first place.
“I hope states decertify the election. I want to hear him say it’s over, we are ready to move on and hold a new election,” said Ray Kallatsa from Tucson, who arrived at the rally site early. “I do think it’s possible, very possible.”
