WEST CARROLLTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Presidential hopeful Donald Trump is gearing up for a rally in the Buckeye State.

The billionaire is leading national polls for the GOP nomination, some Miami Valley supporters say they’re ready cast their ballot for Trump.

“We’re in a disastrous state in the country with nearly $20 trillion debt.” said Rick Dobson, Insignia owner.

Insignia in West Carrollton prints graphics for companies like Cassano’s Pizza. Dobson says a couple of weeks ago he printed a sign supporting Trump and posted it outside of his home.

“If it wasn’t for Trump none of this corruption or this unfair playing field in Washington D.C. would be exposed,” said Dobson.

Dobson says Trump’s delivery may not always be the best, but he appreciates his straightforward attitude.

“Sometimes I think for some of the average people it comes across harsh and kind of intimidating. The more we start yelling back, maybe the more they will start paying attention to our security, financially with immigration with healthcare, all the major issues we’re in desire disaster,” said Dobson.

Trumps appearance Monday night at the Greater Columbus Convention Center is sold out. Dobson wishes he could be there, but hopes everyone will pay attention.

“He’s got to get out there and get his message across. Of course, Ohio is important because the way Ohio goes the way the nation goes,” said Dobson.

No Republican candidate has won the presidency without Ohio. During Trump’s visit Governor John Kasich will be campaigning in Michigan.

Monday evening, Kasich tweeted calling Trump a ‘flip-flopper’.
