He is on the way.
The Twitter account of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump reports that Trump is headed to his noon rally today at the Battleship Wisconsin.
I am leaving for Norfolk, Virginia – the great battleship U.S.S. Wisconsin – for a big rally and really big crowd. See you soon!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2015
Trump’s tweet said he’s expecting a “really big crowd.”
Trump has a Norfolk connection through his father, Fred C. Trump, who owned several properties in Norfolk in the 1970s, including the Hague Towers.
“I have never been so excited about a campaign as I am about this one,” said Alice Butler-Short of Fairfax, following the Richmond rally.
“He’s a Yankee boy, but he’s a tough Yankee boy,” added Edward Perry, a Richmond chemical plant worker. “We live in the south. And I love the South. But I love him too.”
Doors open at 10 and Trump speaks at noon.
