Call 941-575-9101, Tom Rooney’s local (Punta Gorda/Charlotte County) telephone number.
Donald Trump is trying to put the fear of God in people by spreading lies about what “could” happen on election day and saying the only way Hillary will win is if there is cheating on election day. Now he’s calling on vigilantes to patrol polling places.
