LAGRANGE, Ga. – The Trump campaign is rolling into Troup County, hoping to drum up more support for the Republican base five weeks out from election day. As a huge Trump campaign bus pulled up alongside the new GOP headquarters Monday, dozens of local lawmakers and campaign supporters remain steadfast as some believe Georgia may be slipping as a consistently Republican state.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his vice presidential nominee Mike Pence have made several visits to the Peach State in the past few months. The chairman for the Trump campaign in Georgia says the new headquarters is very telling for where the Peach State stands politically.

“Right now they have us listed as a battleground state, they don’t even have us leaning republican,” chairman Rayna Casey said. “There again, the reason we need places that are so important to us like the Troup County GOP headquarters is to get the vote out.”

Casey says Donald Trump, Jr. is expected to stump in Georgia in the next couple of weeks to mobilize more GOP voters in the state. The last time the state of Georgia went to a Democrat, Bill Clinton won the 1992 presidential election. Several polls currently have Trump ahead of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton by about five points in Georgia.
