AUSTIN (KXAN) — Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold two campaign rallies in Texas this week, but will not be stopping in Austin.

On Thursday, the candidate will hold a rally in Dallas at Gilley’s on S. Lamar Street at 7 p.m. The next rally will be held in Houston at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center at 7 p.m.

Both rallies are general admission and doors open at 4 p.m. Trump is also hosting a private fundraiser in San Antonio at the Oak Hills Country Club, according to WOAI. 

Trump will then leave the Lone Star State en route to a campaign rally in Las Vegas on Saturday.

A protest rally, called the “Dump the Dufus Donald Trump Rally & Protest,” is planned outside the Dallas event, KXAS reports. 

On May 26, Trump reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination, avoiding a contested convention. Earlier, on May 3, Texas Senator Ted Cruz ended his presidential campaign, eliminating the biggest challenge to Trump’s bid for the party’s nomination. Ohio Governor John Kasich, the only remaining challenger, dropped out the next day.
