Huntington Preps for President Trump's Rally

West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this West Virginia Morning, President Donald Trump is holding a campaign rally in Huntington Thursday night, something local officials say they prepared for with about a week’s notice.

The event is expected to draw thousands of not just Trump supporters from the tri-state area, but also protestors. Ashton Marra reports while the city doesn’t have any say in what goes on inside the event, they are responsible for what happens outside where tensions could run high.

Also this morning, we hear from Appalachia Health News about what's contributing to the region's nursing shortage and from the Ohio Valeey ReSource on a new approach to raising awareness about Alzeimer's disease.
