Trump’s presidential campaign to open headquarters in Sacramento
A Republican strategist in Northern California has confirmed that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign will open its area headquarters in the Natomas district of Sacramento on Monday next week.
After earning a big victory in the New York presidential primary Tuesday night, Trump’s presidential campaign is now focusing on California, which alone accounts for nearly 14 per cent of delegates that a candidate requires to win his/her party’s nomination for the White House.
Tim Clark, a longtime Republican strategist in Northern California, said, “We are opening our head office here in Sacramento and then we'll have regional satellite offices that we’re about ready to open up.”
There are not only individual campaigns on the Republican side, but also a broader campaign that has been designed solely to prevent Trump from gathering sufficient votes to become the party’s presidential nominee ahead of the Republican National Convention later this summer.
Clark said support for Trump in California is quite strong and the momentum he has built by recently winning the New York primary will help him in the Golden State too.
