MANCHESTER, N.H. – President Trump is returning to the state that gave him his first victory in the 2016 campaign hours before the kickoff of the first primary in the race for the White House.
The president’s re-election campaign made official what had been widely expected: that Trump will hold a rally in New Hampshire on the eve of the state’s famed presidential primary.
Trump packed the arena with rallies on the eve of the February 2016 presidential primary and on the eve of the November 2016 presidential election.
The president’s stop on the eve of the primary in New Hampshire follows a similar rally that he’ll hold in Iowa on Jan. 30, four days ahead of the Iowa caucuses, which kick off the presidential nominating calendar.
The New Hampshire Democratic Party is holding a large event -- which is expected to attract all of the remaining Democratic presidential candidates -- at the SNHU arena on the night of Feb. 8.
