Getting ready for the GOP

(WAFF) -

Huntsville voters will be able to see the Republican party's two leading candidates for president this weekend. Good morning! Trent Butler here. This morning, we're talking about how the city is getting ready for two high profile campaign visits from Marco Rubio on Saturday and Donald Trump on Sunday. Jonathan Radford says thousands of people are expected for Trump's event on Sunday. Jonathan will have a preview in a live report. Plus, we'll tell you how you can hear both candidates speak. 

Meanwhile, some Huntsville homeowners are upset about some political vandalism in their neighborhoods. They've turned to police to investigate after telling officers that someone is stealing Trump campaign signs out of their yards. 

Athens Police have released the video of officers using a taser on a man, who they say, was being combative at Limestone Hospital. That man died after he was tased. You'll hear why the man's mother says she can't watch the video.  

Plus, David Ernst is showing us a cooler start to the day after all that rain on Wednesday. He's also showing us a weekend warming trend. We hope you can join us on WAFF 48 News Today!
