PHOENIX — Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine will visit both Phoenix and Tucson on Thursday to campaign on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

Kaine will host an evening rally in Tucson to discuss what’s at stake in the Nov. 8 election and to encourage voters to take advantage of in-person early voting. The rally will be held at Sunnyslope High School at 6:15 p.m.

Prior to his Tucson visit, Kaine will be in Phoenix at the Maryvale Community Center on Nov. 3 at 2 p.m., where he will deliver a speech entirely in Spanish.

Those who would like to attend the rallies can sign up and RSVP here.

Kaine’s visit follows a string of rallies held by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign over the past week. Trump himself visited Phoenix on Saturday.

The Clinton-Kaine ticket has already heavily invested time in Arizona. First lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, all visited Arizona in the past two weeks.

Clinton will visit the Phoenix area on Wednesday.
