CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Saturday May 28, the Ford Wyoming Center is set to host former president Donald Trump to speak at a rally. The center was contacted in 2021 to set up the rally by the Wyoming Republican Party.

“We’ve been working on this for over a year. The Wyoming Republican Party did reach out to us a while back. Obviously this contract is not with them, this is with Save America PAC, but they did reach out to us about the dates and the availability and we’ve been working on it ever since,” said The Ford Wyoming Centers General Manager Brad Murphy.

The FWC will also be hosting the event outside due to the expected turn out for the rally. The FWC’s capacity inside is just over 8,000 but event planners are expecting at least 20,000 to be in attendance. Even though the rally wont be held inside the center will still be selling concessions at the event. There are also expected to be local and even out of state food trucks vending at the rally.

Local Casper police will be working with the secret service and others national security entities to serve as protection for the former President. Highway Patrol may also be called to help direct traffic for the event.

Mr. Murphy also said, “I think this is really going to put Wyoming and Casper on a national stage for a day, and we’re here as a public entity to support those freedoms of speech and what people want to say. We’re not here to have a cause, we’re here to provide a space and make this a great event for everyone attending.”
