President Donald Trump is heading to Bozeman for another campaign rally in the Treasure State.

Bozeman Police Deputy Chief Jim Veltkamp confirmed that the department was notified by the Secret Service this week that the president will be coming to Bozeman.

A date and location have not been confirmed, Veltkamp said.

Blooomberg reported Friday that Trump is planning to hold campaign rallies in eight states next week.

In addition to Montana, Trump is planning trips to Missouri, West Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Tennessee and Florida, according to Bloomberg.

This will be Trump’s fourth trip to Montana this election season, in which he’s made stops in Great Falls, Billings and Missoula to campaign for Matt Rosendale, the state’s Republican auditor looking to unseat incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester.

Vice President Mike Pence visited Bozeman earlier this month to stump for Rosendale. He also held a rally in Billings for Rosendale in July.

And the president’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., has been to Montana, and Bozeman, numerous times this election season.

Trump visited Montana just last week in a trip to Missoula, where he praised Republican Rep. Greg Gianforte for his 2017 assault on a Guardian reporter at his Bozeman campaign headquarters.
