Trump to hold rally in Austin, fundraiser in Fort Worth

🕐 1 min read

Donald Trump is holding a rally Tuesday in Austin, his first public event in Texas as the Republican presidential nominee. 

Trump was already scheduled to visit Texas on Tuesday for private fundraisers in Fort Worth and Austin. His campaign announced Friday he will also attend the rally, which is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Luedecke Arena. 

While it is unusual for a presidential nominee to publicly campaign in safely red Texas, the Austin rally was not entirely unexpected. When Trump traveled to Texas as the presumptive nominee in June, he added two rallies, one in Dallas and the other in The Woodlands, to a trip otherwise centered on fundraising.  

It will not be the only attention Texas is getting next week from the presidential campaigns. Former President Bill Clinton is set to stop in San Antonio on Thursday for a fundraiser for his wife’s campaign.
