Former President Donald Trump is making a campaign stop in Manchester, New Hampshire next Thursday, April 27, 2023, at the DoubleTree Hilton’s Armory. Trump’s appearance marks one of his first political events since he was arraigned in New York City earlier this month on charges related to a hush-money scheme to cover up an alleged affair during the 2016 campaign.
With ongoing investigations into his conduct during and after his time as commander-in-chief, Trump is proceeding full steam ahead with his campaign for 2024, and his continued dedication to putting America First has led him to raise a whopping $34 million in 2023 alone. Recently Trump has announced a trip to New Hampshire, which is expected to be the first primary state on the Republican calendar.
Polling has shown that Trump is holding strong in New Hampshire, with 42% of likely GOP primary voters backing him, according to a poll from the Saint Anselm College Survey Center at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics earlier this month. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis earned the next most support at 29%, followed by New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu at 14%. The Republican primary field also includes former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson.
Trump announced his third campaign for the presidency in November of 2022 and continues to reach out to Americans across the nation. So far, Nikki Haley and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy have also announced their candidacy for the GOP nomination, while DeSantis has not announced a presidential bid but is expected to do so and is widely seen as Trump’s closest competition.
The upcoming rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, is an opportunity for Trump to deliver remarks on “Making America Great Again”. The event is scheduled for 4 p.m. on April 27, 2023, and is expected to draw a crowd of up to 1,200 at the downtown hotel’s Armory.
Tickets for the event are available on Trump’s website with a limit of two tickets per mobile phone number. The distribution of tickets will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
Overall, the 2024 Republican primary is essentially in full swing, with several potential candidates vying for the nomination. With Trump’s popularity still holding strong in New Hampshire, it will be important to keep an eye on how his campaign develops and what impact his upcoming rally in Manchester has on his candidacy.
