HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will campaign in central Pennsylvania this week.
Trump will host a rally Thursday evening at 7 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center, according to his website.
The visit to the Harrisburg area will be Trump’s first in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. GOP challengers Ted Cruz and John Kasich spoke at an annual meeting of conservatives, the 2016 Leadership Conference, but Trump did not accept an invitation to the April 1 event in Camp Hill.
A Quinnipiac University poll this month found he leads Republican candidates among likely Pennsylvania primary voters with 39 percent, followed by Cruz with 30 percent and Kasich with 24 percent.
The primary is April 26.
Free tickets for the Harrisburg rally are available at www.donaldjtrump.com/schedule/.
This article has been updated because a previous posting on Trump’s website previously listed the event on Friday morning at 9:30 a.m.
