President Trump is likely to receive a very warm welcome in the Democratic stronghold of New Jersey for tonight’s highly anticipated Wildwood rally.

The event, which will take place at the Wildwood Convention Center, has seen supporters line up since Sunday, according to the New York Times:

By Monday at 3 p.m., the line outside the convention center had snaked up and down several blocks, and was growing quickly.

Those with spots close to the front had arrived at about 2 p.m. on Sunday and had spent the night bundled in blankets, “Keep America Great” flags and woolen Trump 2020 hats.

And President Trump was not even scheduled to appear at the convention center until Tuesday night.

WABC reports that campaign senior adviser Lara Trump told WPG Talk Radio that a record 175,000 tickets had been requested for tonight’s rally–more so than any other Trump rally to date.

“I will make sure that because we have had now around 175,000 RSVPS for this rally…it holds 7,500 people the arena we’re using, we’re going to come back, we’re going to do another rally so don’t worry if you didn’t make it into this one we will get you into another one,” Lara said to host Harry Hurley.

It is worth noting that the rally is taking place in New Jersey’s 2nd congressional district, represented by recent Republican convert, Congressman Jeff Van Drew.

Van Drew famously left the Democratic Party last month after getting fed up with their sham efforts to impeach President Trump.

“I think that this is a very weak impeachment. I think it wasted millions of dollars, hours of time, has not been productive, has split the country apart, has caused a fractioning of the country and literally has caused civil unrest in a sense,” he told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo after switching parties.

The rally will begin at 7 p.m. ET tonight and doors open at 3 p.m.
