MANCHESTER, Mass. (WWLP) – President Donald Trump held a rally in Manchester New Hampshire Monday night, a day before residents there will head to the polls.
The rally didn’t start until 7:00 Monday night at Southern New Hampshire University but there are already people lined up here in this cold wet weather, waiting for their chance to listen to President Trump speak. For blocks and blocks, people lined the streets.
There were Trump hats, flags, umbrellas and all sorts of memorabilia being sold on the streets by vendors as well. People were really braving the weather to get inside and see the president.
Manchester Police Chief Carlo Capano said in a tweet that people had actually been lined up since before 6:00 a.m.
The president also tweeted this morning ahead of his big rally. He said he wants to quote “shake up the Dems a little bit.”
The president is expected to easily win the Republican vote in New Hampshire and really the big story is the Democrats duking it out. The Democratic candidates have events all around the state throughout the day to try and win over voters ahead of the first in the nation primary.
The polls open Tuesday morning at 6:00 a.m. in Manchester.
