PHOENIX — Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will campaign in Arizona next week, it was announced Friday.

In an email, her campaign said Clinton will host a rally in the Phoenix area on Wednesday. It was later confirmed that she will speak at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex on Arizona State University’s Tempe campus. Doors for the event will open at 3:30 p.m. and she will begin speaking at 6:30 p.m.

The public can sign up for ticket information online.

Clinton’s visit will come at a crucial time in both her and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaigns. Arizona has shifted into a battleground state over the past months and early voting results in the state shows promise for a potential Clinton win.

Trump will hold his own rally on Saturday in Phoenix.

Wednesday will be Clinton’s second campaign stop in Arizona. She hosted another rally in March.

During that rally, held at Carl Hayden High School, she focused on gun laws, education and homeland security.

“There are three big tests that the president is going to face,” she said. “First, can you make a difference in improving the lives of Americans? Second, can you keep us safe? And third, can you bring us together as a nation — which is where we should be going.”

She also touched on the hot-button topic of immigration reform.

“We are a nation of immigrants and exiles,” she said, promising “to fight for comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship.”
