This is the rally many Montanans have all been waiting for. Sure, it was fun seeing President Donald Trump in Great Falls back in July, and later in Billings. But Trump is on his way to a place that most consider to be very liberal.

On Thursday's Montana Talks radio show, I mentioned the rumor that President Trump is planning a rally in Missoula for October 18. Shortly after I got off of the airwaves from our statewide radio show, I can now tell you that a Republican source is confirming to me that the rally is planned.

The Montana Television Network received a similar confirmation.

KGVO radio's Jon King spoke with the president's son, Eric Trump, on Thursday and also asked him about the rumor:

“You know, I have heard the rumors,” Eric Trump said, “He loves the state, we all love the state and he won the state very decisively, but more than anything, honestly, it’s a place we connect to: it’s amazing people, hardworking people, it’s true America. We love the outdoors out there… all the time I’ve spent fishing and hunting out there, it’s just a place that we have tremendous love for.”
