One of the largest parades Cordova has seen in years occurred on Saturday, with dozens of trucks decorated with Trump flags and American flags rolling through this fishing town on Prince William Sound on the last day of October, with three days to go before the General Election.
MRAK citizen reporters said the enthusiasm was high, and people appreciated that President Trump helped the town through the coronavirus pandemic, and didn’t shut down the economy.
“Hundreds of people are involved it’s hard to get them all in one photo. I think this is the biggest parade I have ever seen and Cordova easily 100+ vehicles,” according to an MRAK citizen reporter, who provided these photos:
Cordova is a town of about 2,160 people, most of whom are involved in the commercial fishing industry. Located near the mouth of the Copper River, it is represented by Sen. Gary Stevens and Rep. Louise Stutes, Republicans.
In 2016, Donald Trump won a tight race in Cordova, 286 to 246 on election and early voting, not counting absentees. It’s a precinct to watch.
Last week, a similar Trump truck parade took place in equally working-class Valdez, Alaska, as provided by an MRAK citizen journalist:
