Donald Trump Draws Big Crowd In Moon Twp. Days Before Election

MOON TWP. (KDKA) -- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was back in the Pittsburgh area just days before Election Day.

People lined up early at a hangar located at Atlantic Aviation in Moon Township on Sunday night. Doors were set to open at 5 p.m. and the rally was set to begin at 8 p.m., but Trump arrived around 10 p.m.

The first challenge supporters had to overcome was the traffic, at times at a standstill miles away from the rally's location.

"We sat out on the Parkway an hour and a half," said Ken Close.

Then there was the matter of waiting in line.

"I hear it's about two miles long but that doesn't stop someone that is determined," said Sharon Smith.

"If I see him from the curb, that's good enough for me," said Tyler Tubbs.

As many as 10,000 were welcomed into the hangar, and thousands more were stopped at the gates.

"When we win on Nov. 8...we are going to drain...the...swamp," the candidate shouted alongside the crowd.

Donald Trump didn't shy away from the subject of Hillary Clinton, saying she "is guilty, she knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it. Now it's up to the American people to deliver justice."

FBI Director James Comey abruptly announced Sunday that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges related to newly discovered emails, but Trump continued to reference the subject.

He also promised to repeal "the disaster known as Obamacare," and to "end government corruption and take the country back from special interests."

Trump finished by telling the crowd: "We have to win Pennsylvania."

The Pittsburgh area has been a popular spot for campaigning in the past week. Trump's running mate, Gov. Mike Pence, appeared at the Atlantic Aviation hangar Thursday.
