Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump held a HUGE rally in Austin, Texas this evening, his second event of the week.
Trump’s address took place at the Luedecke Arena in Austin beginning at 7:30 p.m. Central Time. It can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
Some within the media and even among Trump’s supporters are questioning the New York businessman’s decision to spend time in Texas today. The state is among the most solidly red in the country, and it’s one of the states where Trump stands little to no chance of losing to Hillary Clinton.
But Trump was in Texas on Tuesday to hold two back-to-back fundraisers, first in Fort Worth and then in downtown Austin, according to My Statesman. He has had a history of holding rallies in states he doesn’t necessarily need to spend time in but where he was going to be stopping in anyway. Just last week, Trump held an event in Fairfield, Connecticut, a liberal county that Barack Obama won in 2012 by 10 percentage points.
