BILLINGS – President Donald Trump’s supporters from around the state and country began lining up early for his rally in Billings Thursday.

The first person in line arrived at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Randall Thom from Minnesota said this in the 39th rally he’s been at for President Trump, calling himself one of the ‘Front Row Joes.’

“We try and make sure we get to the rally early so we’re front seats,” says Thom.

Many supporters turned out from within the state as well. Billings resident Natalie Crawford described her time waiting in line like being with family.

“It’s like a small moving family, we all get along so well,” said Crawford. “It’s peaceful, it’s not what people think it is.”

All ages seemed to be represented from young babies to the elderly. Many peple came prepared with chairs, sun umbrellas and at least one family was spotted with board games. A water station was set up to keep people hydrated.

Around 3 p.m. people were let into the arena.
