SPOKANE, Wash. – Republican front-runner Donald Trump made a stop in Spokane on Saturday before the Washington Republican primary on May 24th.
His supporters were out in full force at the Spokane Convention Center. People in line said they got there at around 2:00 a.m. to get in.
"This is kind of like a once-in a lifetime opportunity to see Donald Trump speak and he could be our future President so this is something not a lot of people get to do," Hayden, Idaho resident Carson Benzinger said.
Protestors did show up on Saturday and two of the protestors in the crowd got kicked out during his speech. He spoke for about an hour.
Many of his supporters walked away with a positive feeling.
"I don't think I've ever seen anything like this,” Rally attendee Lisa Nickerson said. “I don't think I've ever seen this much enthusiasm."
The original plan was to use two rooms at the Convention Center but the rally only ended up using one. Event officials said they estimated about 3,000 people ended up showing up.
"Better than Expo,” Rally attendee Kinda Kovick said. “I remember Expo. Better than the first Bloomsday. To me, this was still the ultimate."
