The Arkansas primary is coming up March 1, and Trump is here to win Arkansas delegates. Question for the day is will Trump pick up former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s endorsement. Huckabee pulled his candidacy after receiving only 1.8 percent of the vote and no delegates in the Iowa Caucus Monday. Huckabee had won the Iowa caucus in 2008.
Trump opponents plan a peaceful protest outside the coliseum. They received a permit to legally assemble, peacefully, outside the coliseum.
“From the time he lands, he parks his aircraft, hops into the motorcade, all the way to Barton Coliseum, and the coliseum itself,” Trump will be accompanied by the U.S. Secret Service, said Brian Marr, with the Secret Service. Local law enforcement also will be present.
Only the host committee can have someone removed from the coliseum, Marr said. Secret Service says to come with the bare minimum to get through security quick, which includes no signs with sticks.
Arkansas’s primary election will be Tuesday, March 1. Polls will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 1 was the deadline to register. Early voting starts Feb. 16.
