The Alabama Presidential Primary is Tuesday, March 1, and several presidential campaigns are planning events in Alabama.
The Yellowhammer News and conservative talk radio station 101.1 FM in the Birmingham area had reported that US Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) would attend their Homewood event on Saturday, February 27. Now they are reporting that is not the case. As of press time, US Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) is still reportedly the only candidate attending the event at Samford University at 3:00 p.m. That could be subject to further change.
This week’s Nevada winner, New York City billionaire and reality TV star Donald Trump will be in Huntsville on Sunday, February 28. Donald Trump will be at Black Hall Aerospace (West Wind Hangar) in Huntsville at 4:00 on Sunday.
Senator Marco Rubio has actually announced a rally on February 27, in Huntsville’s US Space and Rocket Center. Senator Rubio will deliver remarks and share his vision for “A New American Century”. The doors open at 4:30 PM and the event begins at 5:30 PM. Each guest is required to RSVP for the Marco Rubio for President event, including all adults over age 12. Each attendee must complete registration separately. If you are unable to RSVP via Eventbrite, onsite registration will be available (pending venue capacity) at the door. Actual event start times are subject to change due to scheduling logistics. If you have any questions contact your local Marco Rubio for President campaign office or email to: [email protected]
The US Space & Rocket Center is at One Tranquility Base in Huntsville, AL 35805.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) will also be in Alabama. Her campaign announced that, “On Saturday, February 27, Hillary Clinton will return to Alabama, where she will hold a get out the vote event in Birmingham ahead of Tuesday’s primary. At the event, Clinton will lay out the case for why she is the best candidate to raise Alabamians’ wages and incomes and break down the barriers that exist for too many families. Additional details about this trip will be released in the coming days.”
