Originally scheduled to be held at the DECC Arena, the Minnesota GOP says that President Donald Trump's rally in Duluth next week has been moved to a larger venue due to popular demand. 

The president will be holding the "Make America Great Again" rally at Amsoil Arena in Duluth, the home of the UMD Bulldogs ice hockey teams that can hold 6,600 for hockey and 8,500 people for concerts. 

DECC Arena has a capacity of 6,600, and ticket applications for the rally were expected to exceed that number. 

The rally will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20, with doors opening at 3:30 p.m. 

It'll be the president's first visit to Minnesota since just before the 2016 election, when he held a rally in a hangar at MSP Airport.

Vice president Mike Pence made a visit to Minneapolis earlier this year.

Trump had told Republican Party members earlier this year he intended to make at least one trip to Minnesota, where there are two Senate seats up for election this year.

The choice to hold the rally in Duluth is another canny one, given the tightly-contested 8th District is now a toss-up after Rick Nolan announced he wouldn't run for re-election.
