Despite the cold and rainy conditions here in Council Bluffs, dozens of Trump supporters showed up in hopes of a front row seat at the rally on Tuesday.

Many Republicans say they're more fired up than ever before for their party.

Cold and wet weather wouldn't keep Trump supporters from camping out hours before his arrival.

"Get a little wet, it's worth it," Support Kim Sievers said.

Sievers and her cousin, Linda Osborn say nothing would hold them back from attending their first presidential rally together.

Osborn traveled all the way from California for the event.

"President Trump has just kind of lit a spark in me, I was never political, never real passionate about politics but it's just something snapped two years ago," Osborn said. It's just been a wonderful ride being on the Trump train."

Nearly everyone we spoke to — including 13-year-old Lilyan Young — said the wait and the rain will all be worth it.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, and the rally starts at 6:30 p.m.
