ROSS TWP., Ohio — Hundreds of people gathered in Butler County on Sunday for a rally supporting President Donald Trump.

Big Buls Roadhouse in Ross Township hosted the event and worked with organizers to follow state guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers painted socially distant spaces on the lawn, spread out tables, set up hand sanitizing stations and encouraged everyone to wear masks as they moved around the event; however, few in attendance actually did wear a mask.

Several Republicans running for office participated in the rally that began with an address from Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones. Speakers at the event detailed their support for the president and why they believe he should be re-elected.

"I think it's so important so that we maintain our freedom and keep our economy growing," said Lee Redkey, an organizer with the event. "I think that Trump has done a great job in keeping his promises."

The event began Sunday afternoon and continued on for several hours.
