A White House Official has confirmed to Valley Public Radio that President Donald Trump will be in Bakersfield on Wednesday. This will be Trump’s first visit to the San Joaquin Valley since his election campaign in 2016.

According to the White House, Trump will visit Kern County with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to give remarks to farmers about water supply and delivery in California and other Western states.

With California's June primary looking more consequential every day, a new PPIC poll shows Donald Trump with a commanding lead among the remaining Republicans running for president.

Trump is preferred by 38 percent of likely voters, followed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with 19 percent. The poll was finished just before Florida Sen. Marco Rubio exited the race, and both he and Ohio Gov. John Kasich registered 12 percent in the poll.
