200 show up for ‘We the People’ rally

Trump event held at Land’s End

About 200 people showed up on Monday for an event organizers billed as a “We the People” rally in support of President Donald Trump.

Held at Land’s End Resort on the Homer Spit, the event included music by musicians Kenny Lee of Nashville, Tennessee, and Stephen Patrick of Anchorage, the stage name for Stephen Holmstock.

“It was really rallying the community standing on the right side of history,” said Holmstock.

Holmstock organized the event as part of Lee’s visit to Alaska. Lee has a new song about Trump, “Trumped Up,” and Holmstock also has a pro-Trump song, “Vote America Great Again.”

A $10 donation was requested to help pay for Lee’s visit to Alaska, but Holmstock said it was not a fundraiser for Trump or an official campaign event. Rep. Sarah Vance (R-Homer) and Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce spoke at the event.
