Trump arrived in style in New Hampshire on Monday ahead of an anticipated speech in Derry, where he rolled up to the State House, officially filing to be on the ballot for the New Hampshire Republican primary election.
Inside the State House, excited Trump supporters lined up along the hallway, holding signs and wearing bright red MAGA hats ahead of his appearance.
The energy inside and outside the State House was electric, as the president was greeted by cheers and applause.
Inside the New Hampshire Secretary of State’s office, President Trump filed the paperwork necessary to put his name on the primary ballot after shaking hands with numerous supporters, taking pictures, and signing autographs.
Trump told the press that New Hampshire was “a very important place. A very important state.”
In the Granite State, President Trump is far and away the leading Republican candidate in the primary polls. According to recent data averages from FiveThirtyEight polling, the president holds 44 percent of GOP primary voter support in New Hampshire, representing a 29-point lead.
New Hampshire is an early-voting state in the GOP primary. The first primary race will take place in Iowa on January 15th during the all-important Iowa caucuses.
