A Bozeman, Montana, restaurant has cancelled Donald Trump Jr.'s campaign rally for GOP Senate candidate Matt Rosendale.

They say it's because they just don't want to take sides in a political fight.

What are the details?

The rally was to take place on Sept. 25 at Bozeman's Midtown Tavern.

Trump Jr.'s girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, is set to join him for the Montana rally, which is currently seeking a new venue, KBZK-TV reported.

Jeff Wilcox, the restaurant's manager, told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that the restaurant "definitely [doesn't] want to take political sides."

"That's never our intention," Wilcox explained. "That's just not who we are. We just try to stay politically neutral. We're a restaurant."

The restaurant reportedly had no indication that the venue booking was for a politics-related event until Rosendale's campaign announced it on Tuesday.

In a statement, Rosendale said, "We’re excited to welcome Trump Jr. and Kimberly back to Montana. This race is a top priority for the Trump administration and it’s an honor to have them join us on the campaign trail. President Trump is now counting on all of us to win this race so we can help him advance his agenda."

Shane Scanlon, a spokesperson for Rosendale, said that over 200 people had reserved tickets for the event.

According to KULR-TV, the event is still set for Sept. 25 at an as-yet announced venue.

Anything else?

Republican Rosendale will face off against two-term incumbent Montana Sen. Jon Tester (D) in the November midterms.

Rick Breckenridge, a Libertarian, is also vying for the seat.

So far, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have also visited the state this year to stump for Rosendale.
