Two rallies today drew two very different groups to downtown Savannah today. In Ellis Square, supporters of
President Donald Trump held a rally on the sunny lawn. Republican leaders spoke to a gathering of around fifty people. Representative Buddy Carter, a Republican and supporter of the president, was supposed to attend but the government shutdown kept him in Washington. He spoke to the gathering over the phone, highlighting the GOP's accomplishments during Trump's first year in office. Others spoke about a return to Christian conservative values.
