Conservative titans Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are joining President Trump on the campaign trail as he makes his closing argument to rally voters on the eve of the November 6 midterm elections.
Limbaugh will stump for Republicans at a rally tonight (Nov. 5) in his hometown of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Rush’s pal, Sean Hannity, will do a live show from the event.
The announcement has electrified the GOP base, who can’t wait to see this Dream Team make the final campaign pitch to help Republicans retain control of both Houses of Congress.
“We’re glad to welcome Cape Girardeau native Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity as special guests to this final stop on the tour,” Michael Glassner, COO of the Trump campaign, said in the statement.
“President Trump will make his case to the American people to support GOP candidates on Election Day in order to continue our great American comeback under his leadership.”
Limbaugh and Hannity, who are good friends, are also longtime friends of President Trump and “strong advocates for the President’s America First agenda,” the campaign underscored.
This is huge news for Republicans, since radio host Rush Limbaugh and Fox News anchor Sean Hannity are two of the most popular figures in the conservative media universe.
Limbaugh has an estimated weekly audience of 20 million listeners, while Hannity has the No. 1 show on cable news. Together, this dynamic duo probably reaches the entire GOP base.
Republicans have an excellent chance to flip Democrat Claire McCaskill’s Senate seat thanks to President Trump, who has campaigned for her GOP opponent Josh Hawley in Missouri — a state Trump won by 20 points in 2016.
Last week, McCaskill distanced herself from the “crazy Democrats” in her own party as polls showed her in a dead heat against Hawley, as BizPac Review has reported.
Claire McCaskill — who voted against the confirmations of both Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch — is extremely vulnerable, so having Limbaugh and Hannity stump for her opponent will probably be the final nail in her Senate coffin.
As it is, many are predicting that Republicans will buck history by retaining control of both Houses of Congress. In October, Rush Limbaugh predicted the GOP will win the midterm elections, fueled by Republican rage over the horrific smear campaign against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“We hold the House and increase the Senate,” Limbaugh told Hannity. “The Democrat Party deserves to lose in the biggest single electoral landslide defeat in my lifetime because of the actions they’ve taken just in the last month.”
Limbaugh echoed the predictions of GOP pollster John McLaughlin, who’s confident of a GOP midterm victory. McLaughlin said the sleazy Democratic attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh sealed their fate.
McLaughlin said Republican voters got enraged by the vicious, defamatory smear campaign against Kavanaugh in the weeks before his confirmation, and this galvanized and energized the GOP base.
"An exhaustive investigation into the 11th hour sexual misconduct claims against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh concluded that there was 'no evidence' to back up any of the accusations."

John McLaughlin was President Trump’s pollster during his 2016 race against Hillary Clinton, as BizPac Review reported. In the months leading up to the election, all the polls had Trump losing bigly to Hillary.
McLaughlin ignored the skewed polls back then, and he’s ignoring them now — because he looks at data and senses a sea change is afoot. And he is not convinced that a “blue wave” is coming.

Patriots, please vote in November. America’s future depends on you.
This man works for free. He works relentlessly into all hours of the night. He is attacked daily by a party of free-loading laggards who have accomplished nothing. He works with a single goal in mind: to save this nation from disaster. Support him Nov. 6 and vote #Republican. pic.twitter.com/V1Zz1M1vHX
