GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is expected in Northern California this week, speaking to voters ahead of the Golden State's June 7 primary. Many Republican voters are excited California's delegates will play a bigger part in the GOP primary than in previous years.

"We're just very, very thrilled that it is coming down to California for Donald Trump to get that 1,237," said Trump campaign volunteer Diana Verba.

Verba is excited her candidate's headquarters are rumored to be coming to Natomas.

"They're just looking for a good cross-road location, I know that as far as Friday, they still hadn't had one," Verba told FOX40.

The exact location will be announced next week after Trump appears at the California Republican Party Convention in Burlingame this weekend.

With such a controversial candidate, the Sacramento Police Department said it is already working on security for his local office in Natomas. Officers have already reached out to Trump's local campaign workers Monday morning to discuss security and offering services.

"Of course we think there's going to be rebel rousers there, of course they're going to be there, but that will be controlled and handled... They have their right to be there, we have our right to be there. So I don't see any problem," Verba said.

Meanwhile California's relevance in the GOP race is becoming more and more important.

"It's very exciting, I think it's a case of be careful what you wish for. California has wanted to be relevant for a long time, I think we're getting our wish," said Adam Ellison, who is the vice chairman for the Young Republicans National Federation.

Ellison said many conservatives are heading to Burlingame to meet the candidates and ask about California issues, an experience they've missed out on in other elections.

" I know there's a lot of California Republicans who are excited about the opportunity to get to shake hands and maybe experience a little bit of what Iowans experience and residents of New Hampshire," said Ellison,

He said no one should be surprised to see the three GOP candidates coming through the Central Valley as June 7 approaches.

"After all, it's not a winner take all state, so every candidate is going to try to get as many delegates out of California as possible by congressional district."
