"Really big crowd expected in Texas this weekend," Trump wrote in a Save America PAC statement Monday. "The rallies are bigger than ever before — so much to talk about!"

Texas is the largest Republican-held state, trailing just California (54) with 40 Electoral College votes. Texas has been growing, gaining two electors for the 2024 presidential election.
Many larger Democrat-led states have lost one elector, including: California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Michigan and Pennsylvania figure to be key battlegrounds again in 2024 as so-called "rust-belt, blue-wall" states.
