The crowd began to gather on Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 6, and more than a thousand people were waiting outside the Monroe Civic Center on Wednesday morning to welcome President Donald Trump to a rally supporting Republican nominee Eddie Rispone.

The president traveled Wednesday to the northeastern Louisiana to Monroe hoping to raise votes for Republican businessman Eddie Rispone and keep Democrat John Bel Edwards from a second term in a crimson state Trump won by 20 percentage points. Early voting ends Saturday in the Nov. 16 election, according to The Associated Press.

President Trump described Rispone as “a fantastic man, a great success. Everything he’s touched has turned to gold.” The president also plans a Nov. 14 rally in Bossier City for Rispone.

More than 40,000 people requested tickets for the event, and the Monroe Civic Center can hold between 7,500 and 10,000 people. A large screen will broadcast the rally to the crowd outside that can’t fit in the venue, according to The News Star.
