DES MOINES, Iowa -- Last weekend, President Trump’s supporters gathered for boat parades across the state, from Adams County to Coralville, and along the great Mississippi River, from Harpers Ferry and Dubuque all the way to Muscatine. Even on land, Iowans found ways to show their support -- with a tractor parade taking place in Denison

This overwhelming enthusiasm simply doesn’t exist for Democrats and Joe Biden. When the caucuses were over, Biden packed up and left Iowa behind. Meanwhile, Team Trump has been on the ground for over a year -- and now not only has the Iowa Trump Victory team made over one million calls, they’ve also knocked over 100,000 doors since August first alone, while closely following CDC guidelines -- wearing masks and socially distancing.

Here are some highlights from Labor Day Weekend:
