Donald Trump hasn’t arrived in Warren, Mich. yet, but his supporters have. Crowds gathered outside the Macomb Community College Sports and Expo Center on Saturday morning, hoping to get a prime spot inside the building for Trump’s speech to support Republican midterm candidates in Michigan.

Amongst the supporters were Michigan Attorney General candidate Matt DePerno and Secretary of State candidate Kristina Karamo, both of whom had campaign tents at the venue with voter outreach volunteers. Both DePerno and Karamo, as well as gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon, are slated to speak alongside Trump at tonight’s event. 

Several high-profile conservative figures are also in attendance. Georgia U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene made an appearance and spoke to the press, expressing her support for the Michigan GOP ticket and former President Trump. Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow and noted conspiracy theorist, was also present in the crowd and participated in several video interviews.

The Warren rally is the latest in a string of appearances made by Trump to support GOP candidates around the country, many of whom are running for state-level offices. Trump has endorsed all three top of the ticket candidates in Michigan and has devoted fundraising resources to unseating Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel, and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

Trump is scheduled to arrive at 7 p.m. and speak until 9 p.m.
