One month ago today, the Owensboro Times launched, and as the photographer for them, I've gotten to photograph some pretty cool things. On Aug. 30th, President Trump showed up at a rally at the Ford Center in Evansville to support Republican Senate candidate Mike Braun.
This is not a political post, but I was excited to attend and photograph the event. He is the first sitting President that I've seen in person, and whether you like him not, it was still an awesome experience. Trump was also the first sitting President to visit Evansville since Reagan.
I had to idea what to expect with the security, crowd, and protesters. It was pretty mild from what I saw. I checked in the media entrance, went through security checks, and picked my spot on the media platform.
Here are a few photos from the night.
