President Donald Trump will hold rallies in eight states next week, including Montana, in his final push before the election, according to Bloomberg News.

Trump’s Montana visit will be held in Bozeman, but the date has not yet been released.

In addition to Montana, Trump will visit Missouri, West Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida on the campaign trail, the news service reported Friday.

All are states the President Trump won in 2016, and all have competitive House or Senate races in November’s mid-term election.

Trump has already visited Montana three times since July, and a fourth visit would mean he’s stopped in the Treasure State more than any other sitting President in history, surpassing Harry S Truman.

Trump’s previous visits to Great Falls, Billings and Missoula have been campaign-style rallies for Republican Matt Rosendale in his bid to unseat Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Tester.

President Trump has an approval rating of 54.5 percent in Montana – more than any top politician in the state, according to a recent MTN News/MSU poll.
