So I know a lot of you believed our April Fools’ post about Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders holding campaign events in Conshohocken on April 20th, but please note that the below information is real.
Donald Trump opened a campaign office today at 4:00 p.m. at 601 Old Elm Street in Conshohocken (really Plymouth Township). The office is located on the Conshohocken Road side of the building.
We learned about this due to a tweet from a Twitter handle claiming to be Frank Rizzo.
@realDonaldTrump SE PA Campaign Office opens today 4:00PM at 600 Old Elm Street, Conshohocken, PA 19428. #PAprimary

We didn’t know whether to believe it or not, but whoever is behind the handle sent us text from an email he or she had received from the campaign with the announcement. We also found the same email text on Reddit. Below is the text from the email:
In just 7 days Pennsylvania voters go to the polls on Tuesday, April 26th.
This week is the BIG PUSH to ensure a win for Donald Trump in the Keystone State!
We are excited to announce that our Southeast Pennsylvania Trump Campaign HQ is open for supporters in Conshohocken – Montgomery County!
The office will open today at 4pm with daily hours of 9AM to 9PM, our address is 600 Old Elm Street, Conshohocken, PA 19428.
You can have the biggest impact NOW on two fronts:
1). Phoning voters statewide to get them to the polls
2). Door knocking local voters to turn them out to vote
When you stop in the office please bring your cell and a laptop or tablet so we can get you set up to make calls. We do have a limited number of tablets for you to use so bring one if you have it!
Please plan your schedule this week and weekend to give your MAXIMUM TIME to put Donald Trump over the top in the Pennsylvania!
If you have questions email Gary at email@example.com. We will have lawn signs and other materials at the HQ.
We look forward to seeing you at the office and let’s Make America Great Again!
All the best,
Team Trump PA

We went to the office just after 4:00 p.m. and no one would talk to us. We were referred Hope Hicks, who is a higher up in the campaign.
This doesn’t mean The Donald will be making an appearance in Conshohocken, so don’t get too excited if you are a Trump supporter. Hillary Clinton opened a local office in Ambler a few weeks ago. We haven’t heard of any local offices for the other candidates.
Note that the announcement said 600 Old Elm Street, but the sign over the door clearly states 601.
