When Donald Trump came to Biloxi early this year, he packed the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. Supporters waited for hours to get in to see him.

Now the Republican presidential nominee is returning to Mississippi, a state where he has a huge lead in the race for its six electoral votes.

A spokesman for Gov. Phil Bryant’s office said all he knew was Trump would be somewhere in the Jackson area Aug. 24. That’s a Wednesday.

The Mississippi Republican Party is handling the details but Trump events usually require tickets available for free at DonaldJTrump.com/schedule.

Donald Trump Jr. spoke to a crowd of more than 2,000 at the Neshoba County Fair earlier this week.
