Trump Plans Counterprogramming Before New Hampshire Primary




(Bloomberg) --

President Donald Trump won't let Democrats have the spotlight to themselves during the New Hampshire Primary.

As he did during a Democratic debate earlier this month, Trump will offer some counterprogramming: He is planning a massive rally on Feb. 10, the night before the New Hampshire primary.

Trump is technically on the ballot in the Granite State as well, facing token opposition from former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld and former Representative Joe Walsh.

The rally will be held at the SNHU Arena, an ice hockey venue in Manchester that seats as many as 11,000.

Trump is also holding a rally in Iowa on Jan. 30, four days before the Feb. 3 caucuses.

Disclaimer: Michael Bloomberg is also seeking the Democratic presidential nomination. He is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.
