History of Nebraska Patriots for TRUMP
Our “Trump for President” volunteers began when Trump’s Primary Office opened in March of 2016. After the Primary, we wanted to continue to support Candidate Donald Trump. Things really kicked in when the Omaha Trump office opened in August 2016 for the General Election. We called into battle ground states, where out of 32 States, we were the fourth most in telephone calls supporting the election of our president. We had a great election night party, followed by a Christmas/Trump party in December, and culminating with the Inauguration party where all the Trump volunteers from primary through the general election came together to watch President Trump take the oath of office on January 20th, 2017. It was at this party that we decided to stay together and start the “Nebraska Patriots for TRUMP”.
So far in 2017, we hosted two rallies as part of the ‘Spirit of America Rallies’ which were Pro-Trump. These rallies were held throughout the United States on Monday February 27th and on Saturday March 4th. Our group was also invited to the ‘Nebraska Make America Great Again Appreciation March’ on March 25th. All the rallies were to support President TRUMP, Veterans, First Responders and Law Enforcement. A description of each rally is below.
FEBRUARY 27th (Monday) at Offutt Air Force Base from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The rally was located near the Flag Gate.
MARCH 4th (Saturday) held outside the Jerzes Sports Bar located at 501 Olson Drive (at Gold Coast Drive) in Papillion from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. A tent was set-up in the north parking area Jerzes Sports Bar. There were several guest speakers.
MARCH 25th (Saturday) Our group was asked to lead The Nebraska Make America Great Again Appreciation March which began at 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm from the Gene Leahy mall to the Courthouse in Omaha where the rally was held. There were some great guest speakers.
We endorsed and campaigned for Taylor Royal for Mayor of Omaha, supported Town Hall meetings for Congressman Don Bacon, and several of our members have supported legislation and testified at the Nebraska Legislature this past year.
On OCTOBER 12th our group endorsed Taylor Royal for Nebraska State Treasurer and help with his campaign.
We have bi-monthly member meetings and many officer meetings throughout the year.
