United States President Donald Trump will have a rally early next month in Topeka as part of his national midterm campaign tour.
The Make America Great Again rally will be at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 6, at the Kansas Expocentre, 1 Expocentre Drive, according to a news release sent to The Topeka Capital-Journal.
It's the second rally that Trump has taken part in in Kansas and the first rally in Topeka since he began his run for president. Trump visited Wichita in March 2016 for the Kansas caucuses.
The release said Trump is expected to discuss the "booming economy that’s lifting up families across Kansas, and the critical importance of protecting and expanding the GOP majorities in the House and Senate."
Brad Parscale, a Shawnee Heights graduate, is Trump's campaign manager and drove the digital push for Trump during his 2016 campaign.
“As a Topeka native, I look forward to joining president Trump in my hometown to celebrate the incredible success of the Trump economy that’s delivered new jobs and bigger paychecks across the state,” Parscale said in a statement. “This is a great opportunity for Kansans to celebrate the promises made — and kept — by President Donald Trump.”
Michael Glassner, chief operating officer for Donald J. Trump for president, said Trump will remind Kansas voters of the critical importance of supporting their Republican candidates in the midterm elections in November.
"President Trump looks forward to celebrating the success of his America First agenda with patriots from my home state of Kansas," Glassner said.
Trump has endorsed Republican Kris Kobach in the upcoming gubernatorial election. Kobach is running against Democrat Laura Kelly, Independents Greg Orman and Rick Kloos, and Libertarian Jeff Caldwell.
Doors open at 3:30 p.m for general admission, the release said. No other information on tickets was immediately available.
