The rally comes as Trump seeks to shore up support in Pennsylvania and other states that he won during the 2016 election as he faces a mounting impeachment inquiry in the House centered on his efforts to get Ukraine to launch politically charged investigations.

Democrats also scored significant wins in this year’s local elections in the Philadelphia suburbs, an area that is home to some of the most hotly contested voters in the country.

Democratic candidates won or maintained majorities in the councils of three Philadelphia-area "collar counties" earlier this month, a cautionary tale for the GOP’s chances in the nation’s suburbs.   

Hershey is located in Dauphin County, which Trump lost to Clinton by just under 3 points in 2016.
