Defense lawyers representing President Donald Trump finished their opening arguments in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial on Tuesday, shortly before the defendant departed for a campaign rally in New Jersey.
Trump's rally is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Eastern at the Wildwoods Convention Center, which has a capacity of 7,000.
During the 2016 presidential election, Trump lost New Jersey by over 500,000 votes as Hillary Clinton carried the state's 14 electoral votes in a 14 percentage point landslide.
Few expect New Jersey to be a swing state in the 2020 election, but Trump is also traveling to South Jersey to support Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who was elected as a Democrat but switched parties to support Trump.
