Donald Trump's upcoming Houston-area rally is like Coachella for Texas GOP candidates

TFG is holding a super spreader event in Texas

When Donald Trump takes the stage in Conroe on Saturday, he’s almost guaranteed to continue talking about rigged elections, Joe Biden’s failings and the prospects of running again for president in 2024.

But the rally — his first full-fledged MAGA event in Texas since 2019 — means far more to GOP strategists. For them, it’s a gold mine of political organizing. For hours, they will have a captive audience of Trump loyalists who can be enticed into volunteering on other campaigns, added to donor lists and introduced to other Republicans running for office who will get time to speak at the event......

For Democrats, Trump’s frequent trips to Texas are tiring, but a signal that Republicans are in trouble.

“What it means to me is that they are scared,” said Harris County Democratic Party Chair Odus Evbagharu.

Conroe is in Montgomery County Texas which has a number of hate groups https://www.khou.com/article/news/crime/hate-group-based-in-montgomery-county-has-history-of-violence/285-d08cc091-c237-4df3-9a43-5df9fbad91c1

It is no wonder that Montgomery County is the county where TFG did best (from the article cited in OP)
In coming to Montgomery County, Trump is coming to the Texas county that performed best for him in 2020. Among counties with at least 100,000 voters, Montgomery County was the only one where he won over 70 percent of the vote.

It will be interesting to see if COVID cases spike after this event.
