LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- President Donald Trump announced Saturday he will hold a "Keep America Great" rally in Las Vegas next week.

The rally will be on Friday, Feb. 21 at 12 p.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the campaign announced.

Supporters camped out in front of the Convention Center as early as 3 a.m. Thursday. 

"I went to the Phoenix rally last night and when it was over I was so, I had so much energy I was like I can make it to Vegas tonight," said Blake Marnell.

Marnell was one of the first people in line alongside Dean Poirier. 

"I've got an upcoming surgery, this was going to be my last chance. So I took a bus in from Rancho Cucamonga," said Poirier. 

Marnell and Poirier said camping and talking to other supporters is part of the experience. 

"You get a chance to meet like-minded over the top patriots, it's pretty sweet," said Poirier. 

"Part of the fun for rally's right now for me is really getting to learn how people came to support our president," said Marnell.

Marnell said he didn't vote for anyone in 2016. He wasn't even registered. 

"Shortly after he was elected we got out of the trans-Pacific Partnership, we got out of the Paris climate accord, we canceled the Iran nuclear deal, we cut taxes ... And now I'm fully on board," said Marnell. 

Trump's visit comes the day before the Nevada Democratic caucus, during a busy week for his rivals looking to gain support in the Silver State.

Doors will open for the general public at 8 a.m. You can register for tickets to the rally online.
