Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s Georgia campaign headquarters has relocated to Sandy Springs, where a public grand opening on Sept. 17 will feature a “special guest.”

Trump’s state headquarters was previously in Cobb County’s Cumberland area. The Sandy Springs HQ in the Northridge 400 office park at 8607 Roberts Drive, Suite 125, is already in operation, according to state campaign spokesperson Jennifer Hazelton.

Hazelton said the campaign chose a Sandy Springs office because of available office space at a site convenient to its volunteers. 

Local voter registration is strongly Republican, but Trump was not a local favorite in the primary season, with U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio leading on the ballot and Ohio Gov. John Kasich making a campaign stop with the mayor’s backing.

“The Trump-Pence campaign in Georgia is firing on all cylinders and driving towards a November victory,” said Brandon Phillips, the Trump campaign’s state director, in a press release. “We are excited to have this base of operations from which to spread Donald Trump’s message of economic prosperity, job growth, fiscal responsibility, a strong military and secure borders.”

The Sept. 17 grand opening will be open to the public, Hazelton said. The time will be announced shortly, and the “special guest” remains a surprise.

Meanwhile, the campaign headquarters is in operation from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 to 8 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call 678-888-4872 or email
