President Donald Trump’s campaign has inquired with the City of Johnson City about hosting a rally at Freedom Hall Civic Center in the coming weeks, according to Assistant City Manager Charlie Stahl.

As of Friday, a specific date for the rally has not been set and a contract has not been signed, Stahl said.

Three sources close to the Tennessee Republican Party and Trump campaign also confirmed that Trump is looking to host a rally at Freedom Hall to stump for U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s senatorial campaign.

Abbi Sigler, a campaign spokesman for Blackburn, has not responded to inquiries from the Johnson City Press seeking comment.
