Valdosta voters could add a bump for Trump.

The reality-star-turned-Republican candidate is setting up shop in Valdosta. The headquarters will be located on North Valdosta Road and will open on Feb. 6 at 11 a.m. with a free public event. The grand opening of the center will be run by Lowndes County Trump Manager Barbra Schmader.

Despite Trump’s 4 percent loss in the Iowa caucus Monday night to Ted Cruz, the candidate plans to carry on and continue his campaign. However, what Cruz is calling a “Trumper tantrum” ensued on Twitter Wednesday after the loss.

Cruz was the first 2016 presidential candidate to establish a headquarters in Valdosta back in December, according to the Valdosta Daily Times. Now the Trump vs. Cruz war can rage on in South Georgia.

Georgia’s primary election will be held on March 1, and as of Feb. 3, Trump is projected to win the state on the Republican side according to Real Clear Politics.
