Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will rally in Portland on Thursday ahead of Maine’s Saturday caucuses and Gov. Paul LePage will be introducing him.
News of Trump’s Maine visit was first reported by WCSH-TV on Wednesday afternoon and the event was placed on Trump’s online schedule shortly afterward. It’ll be in the ballroom of The Westin Portland Harborview hotel — better known as the former Eastland Park Hotel — at 1:30 p.m.
LePage, who became Trump’s highest-profile Maine supporter after his Friday endorsement of the mogul, said Wednesday on the Howie Carr Show that he’ll be introducing Trump at the rally.
There has been no recent public polling in Maine’s Republican presidential race, making Trump’s position hard to gauge. But he has won all of Maine’s neighboring states that have voted so far, including New Hampshire last month and Vermont and Massachusetts on Tuesday.
