Crowds gather ahead of the Trump rally in North Carolina in Johnston County

SELMA, NC (WNCN) – Former President Trump will take the stage at a rally in central North Carolina early Saturday night.

People turned up at The Farm at 95 on Friday to see Trump speak. Hundreds of people began camping Friday ahead of the Save America rally.

The event, which officially begins at 7 p.m., will include a lineup of Republican candidates backed by Trump.

Among those candidates is Rep. Ted Budd, who is now looking to secure a seat in the Senate.

First-term Congresswoman Madison Cawthorn and Congressman hopeful Bo Hines are also scheduled to speak at the rally, which is being held at a location northeast of Selma along Interstate 95.

For Trump supporters and conservatives at the rally, the issues they think are paramount are increased inflation leading to higher cost of living and higher gas prices.

“What we’re seeing now is the truth fighting itself,” said Lashue Sharpless, who was at the rally Saturday afternoon. “What you see is all you had, what you no longer have, more of what you had to spend and save as a family, you have less of it.”

The rally comes less than six weeks before the May 17 North Carolina primary.

President Joe Biden will travel to Greensboro on Thursday for discussion Issues like rebuilding the supply chain and fighting inflation.
