According to his campaign, this is the sixth rally the president will hold in Texas and the second in the Houston area since he began his run for president in June 2015.

In recent months, Trump has pledged his support to former rival Sen. Ted Cruz, who is in a close re-election race with Democratic challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

Trump vowed to hold a Cruz rally at the biggest venue possible within the state.

On August 31, President Trump tweeted, “I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October.  I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find.”

The capacity at NRG Stadium, where the Houston Texans play, is 77,220.

NRG Arena, where the campaign event will take place, holds around 10,000 people.
