Trump moves to general election mode with Pennsylvania rally

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — It’s Donald Trump’s first rally of the general election season, a Saturday night event in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, with Republican candidates in the pivotal state.

That’s putting Senate control on the line after it was once assumed to be a lock for Republicans.

The stakes are particularly high for Trump as he lays the groundwork for an expected 2024 presidential run amid a series of escalating legal challenges. Chief among them is the FBI’s recent seizure of classified documents from his Florida home.
