LORDSTOWN, Ohio — There’s a glimmer of hope for the downtrodden town of Lordstown and its General Motors plant that once employed thousands of workers.

According to GM representative Dan Flores, the company has “received inquiries from interested parties related to the Lordstown Complex and the Chevrolet Cruze.”

Flores didn’t say what specific parties have taken interest in the facility, just that GM “would consider any that are truly viable business opportunities.”

Several months ago, Elon Musk appeared to be mulling over the idea of acquiring the complex for Tesla.

The plant ceased production earlier this month when the last Cruze rolled off the line.

During a visit to the Lima Army Tank Plant on Wednesday, President Trump called for the Lordstown GM plant to be sold so workers could be employed there again. His speech echoed sentiments he tweeted out earlier in the week.

“Because the economy is so good, General Motors must get their Lordstown, Ohio, plant open, maybe in a different form or with a new owner, FAST!” Trump tweeted Saturday.
