8. Presidential visits are a bit different

For a campaign event, a municipality or state could:

- Decline to rent out any of their facilities to the event

- Decline to provide (or ask an extortionate price for) the necessary additional security.

The former issue could be evaded by holding the event on a friendly piece of private property. The latter issue I am less clear on - the Secret Service handles the actual security for the President, and probably would do so for the immediate venue, so the local government refusing to help would probably wind up just creating a situation where nobody is directing traffic or keeping protests under control outside the event - i.e., cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face.
