REDDING, Calif. (AP) — Hundreds are lining up for a Donald Trump rally in far Northern California but the atmosphere in the city of Redding is much different than it was in San Jose Thursday night when protesters pounced on Trump supporters.

 

Trump Rally

 

There are no protesters in sight ahead of the scheduled Friday afternoon rally at the local airport, where a giant American flag flutters from a crane.

 

It's much more fertile ground for Trump's insurgent candidacy where rural conservative residents often feel slighted by government officials in Sacramento, 150 miles to the south, and Washington, D.C., a continent away.

 

Redding is the seat of Shasta County, the center of a secessionist movement to create a 51st state called Jefferson.

 

In San Jose Thursday night, protesters threw eggs and punches at Trump supporters, grabbed their hats, chased them and banged on their cars.
