SILVER SPRING TWP., Pa. -- Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump rallied in Cumberland County Monday night. Trump coming to Pa. comes right on the heels of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's rally in Harrisburg.

Thousands of people waited in line for hours outside of Cumberland Valley High School to see Donald Trump.

Most people were there to support the Republican presidential nominee.

Al Brandt, from Lebanon, said, "I think he's sparking, igniting a flame in our culture that we have not seen for a really long time. And I just want to be part of it and bring my son along to be part of history."

But some were undecided and wanted to hear more from him.

Becca Fickel, from Shippensburg, said, "I'm here just to see and get information and just experience something because this election is something as fascinating for a long time so I think it's a pretty cool opportunity to be this young and get involved in any way you can."

Trump spoke at the rally comparing his speeches to Clinton's, talking about dishonesty in the media and his relationship with Vladimir Putin.

Trump asked, "If we could get along with Russia, wouldn't that be a good thing instead of a bad thing?"

He said people in Pennsylvania should be concerned if Clinton is elected.

"The Harrisburg region has lost 1 in 3 manufacturing jobs since Bill Clinton signed NAFTA. 1 in 3 great job Bill. Great job," he said.

Some people were inspired by Trump's speech and said they are ready for him to take office.

Brandt said,"We're looking for change and I believe he has changes that are positive for the whole nation not just for a select group of people."

Pennsylvania has not voted Republican in a presidential election in more than 20 years.

Governor Mike Pence was not at the rally. He was in Reno, Nevada, at a town hall.
