Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, looking ahead to the June 7 primary here, is preparing to open his California headquarters in the Natomas area of Sacramento, a spokesman said Wednesday.
Tim Clark, Trump’s state director, said he plans to have the office up and running next week, along with another space in Southern California.
Since taking the job this month, Clark has been working to organize volunteers across California, a state that’s unaccustomed to presidential campaigning, especially of the retail variety. The billionaire businessman is planning several visits to the state, which awards its delegates by 53 congressional districts.
Trump’s overwhelming victory Tuesday in New York puts him in position to clinch the nomination here, though Republicans Ted Cruz and John Kasich, as well as outside groups, are readying their efforts to deny him the delegates he needs to avoid a showdown at the national convention.
