HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Donald Trump will make a campaign stop in Huntsville this weekend, Secretary of State John Merrill said.
On Sunday, February 28, Donald Trump is scheduled to appear at Black Hall Aerospace.
Doors open at 2 p.m. with the program beginning at 4 p.m. The link to get tickets can be found here.
"We are excited to have Donald Trump make his third campaign stop in Alabama, and we want to welcome him to our great state once again! Mr. Trump’s visit to Mobile in August was the single largest event for any candidate of either party in any state during this election cycle! I am thrilled with how the SEC Primary has developed and what it means for our people to have personal interaction with these candidates," Merrill said.
Trump's visit comes just two days before Alabama's primaries.
Rep. Ed Henry (R- Hartselle) is one of two chairs for the Trump campaign in Alabama. He tells WHNT News 19 the earlier you register, the better off you'll be. He's unsure how many people are expected at the event, but says he is very much looking forward to it.
"We were hoping to get a little more notice than 4 or 5 days, but we're just glad he's coming," remarked Bob Baccus, a Trump delegate. "We need him. We need somebody who's very strong, who's for national defense."
We checked with Rep. Will Ainsworth, co-chair of Marco Rubio's Alabama campaign, about the Florida Senator's upcoming visit to Huntsville. He's also scheduled to be in the Rocket City that same weekend, although Ainsworth said it's for a private fundraiser on Saturday. Ainsworth said they're exploring possibilities of a public campaign event during Rubio's visit, though no plans for one have been made yet.
