Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump spoke at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport in Vienna Township.

Nearly 3,000 Trump supporters packed the Winner Aviation hanger on Monday, and Trump stepped off of his personal jet with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

The U.S. Secret Service, the Ohio Highway Patrol, and four dozen officers from several police departments were on hand in response to issues with protesters in Chicago and St. Louis over the weekend.

Trump made a last minute decision to make his way to Northeast Ohio, cancelling an event in Florida the night before his visit to the Youngstown area.

Trump's one hour speech was not interrupted by protestors, like it was repeatedly during similar Trump events in Kansas City and Dayton.

Police told no more than two dozen protesters showed up at the rally, and were kept in an area just outside airport property.

Police report there were not arrests or issues during the event.

Polls show Ohio Governor John Kasich with a small lead in the race to win the state's 66 delegates.
