FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - President Donald Trump wrapped up a last minute campaign tour with a stop in Fort Wayne Monday.

The President spoke to more than 20,000 people at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, pushing people to support Republican Mike Braun in what is one of the closest senate races in the nation.

Many people had to watch President Trump from the parking lot.

"If you want a senator who will be loyal to the people of Indiana, he'll do what's right, vote tomorrow, get out tomorrow," said Trump.

"You're going to see in the next two years, and once the president gets reelected, there are going to be more people like me to come on board," Braun said.

The rally focused on achievements the President hopes to build on, including the economy, health care, veterans and our military.

Ivanka Trump ,KellyAnne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders also spoke, encouraging the woman to vote.

"Tomorrow, we want you all to turn out tomorrow and help us fight back so we can continue to keep this thing rolling," said Ivanka Trump.

A handful of protesters had to be escorted from the rally and the crowd chanted "lock her up" when President Trump highlighted on the women who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavenaugh of sexual assault admited she made the story up.

Trump also slammed Senator Joe Donnelly, saying he is part of the problem.

"Joe Donnelly was rated the least effective Democrat in the United States Senate," Trump said.

Donnelly welcomed President Trump to Fort Wayne, his campaign thanking the President for "keeping thousands of committed Braun supporters off the phones and doors the night before the election" as the campaign called voters across the region encouraging them to vote.
