WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Supporters and protesters from all across the Tri-State attended a town hall meeting held by businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at the Savannah Center, two days before Ohio's winner-takes-all primary.

Polling shows the contest is essentially a two-man race between Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Thousands of people waited in line for entry to the event, with some 1,200 granted entry.
