With Virginia’s presidential primary elections just around the corner, one candidate is hoping to whip up some support in Fairfax County before polls open next Tuesday (March 5).

Former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley will hold a rally at The Westin Tysons Corner (7801 Leesburg Pike) in Idylwood at 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday). It will be her second event in the state today after she visited Richmond at 12:30 p.m.

Haley is the only candidate left challenging former president Donald Trump for the Republican nomination, though the ballot features several also-rans like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy who dropped out after qualifying.

Despite getting embroiled in multiple court battles, including an election interference trial where he’s claiming immunity from prosecution, Trump has emerged as a clear frontrunner in the GOP race, winning every state that has voted so far. Haley has managed to get 20 delegates to her opponent’s 110, according to NBC News.

The Democratic Party will also hold a primary on Tuesday. President Joe Biden is the presumed nominee, but Dean Benson Phillips, a Congressional representative for Minnesota, and Marianne Williamson, who recently unsuspended her campaign, will also appear on the ballot.

Early voting is currently underway in Fairfax County. Fifteen in-person sites are open until 5 p.m. this Saturday (March 2), though the deadline for requesting a mail ballot has passed.
