100,000 Texans RSVP to Trump-Cruz Rally; Attendees Camp Out 24 Hours in Advance

President Donald Trump’s supporters began lining up and camping out 24 hours before Monday’s rally in Houston, Texas, which has received at least 100,000 signups for the 18,000-person venue.

Television crews arrived around 4:00 a.m. local time Monday outside of the venue where President Trump will speak Monday night. The Fox News reporter stated they had seen the line grow throughout the hours:

The Line Before Massive Rally

Wow! So much enthusiasm last night in Houston. It's going to be a BIG night in Texas!

The television cameras could not fit the whole line in their view.

Officials told Fox News that 100,000 people have signed up for the rally where President Donald Trump will speak Monday night. The Toyota Center, the venue for the rally, has a capacity of 18,000. The reporter said those lining up were doing so in part to make sure “they could have as close a chance to get to President Trump as possible.”

CNN reporter Betsy Klein posted photos Sunday night of some of the crowd lining up and camping out to get into the rally:

Trump will promote Sen. Ted Cruz in his bid for re-election. It is the first day of early voting in Texas.

Food trucks and a band are expected to arrive outside the venue around 9:00 a.m. local time for a “tailgating-style rally,” according to the report.

Doors for the venue open at 3:30 p.m. local time, and rally speakers are scheduled to begin around 6:30 p.m.
