BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Just after his Democratic counterpart Hillary Clinton announced she would campaign in Buffalo, Republican front-runner Donald Trump announced he will be stopping to rally in the Queen City.

Trump will take over the First Niagara Center on April 17 at 7 p.m., and the public will be welcome to attend. Trump’s campaign first made the announcement, and Erie County Republican Committee Chairman Nick Langworthy confirmed the event soon after.

New York’s primary is on April 19.

Rallies for Trump have been long talked about in Buffalo, his supporters include local congressmen and businessmen, including congressman Chris Collins and businessman Carl Paladino.
