WEST CARROLLTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Ohio was the first of the key swing states to fall Donald Trump’s way on Election Night.
Some of the president-elect’s biggest fans say they’re right here in the Miami Valley.
2 NEWS has interviewed Rick Dobson several times about his support for Trump. The West Carrollton resident runs a sign printing company and has printed 50,000 Trump support signs since the primary back in March.
“A lot of long, long, hard hours. Lots of time spent talking with a lot of people,” said Dobson, owner of Insignia.
Throughout Trump’s campaign, Dobson posted hundreds of campaign signs in his yard, pushing to get the Republican candidate votes.
“I would put them out in my yard every weekend,” he said.
Dobson spent hours volunteering at the polls on Election Day and even though the results took hours to come in later that night, Dobson watched the numbers come in all night anyway.
“I’m extremely happy with the outcome. We finally have a president who has no obligation or allegiances to a political party,” he said.
Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer had been outspoken about his support for the Republican candidate.
“The citizens of the United States just won their country back and we’re getting a lot of good calls. People are ecstatic,” said Plummer.
As for the people who woke up disappointed.
“The people spoke. This is a democracy. We lived eight years with a Democrat President and the Republicans won this time. We need to unite,” Plummer said of President Obama.
As for Dobson, he plans on printing more Trump support gear in the future.
