PHOENIX – President Donald Trump returns to Arizona for the sixth time this campaign season Monday, with trips to the north and south.

First up is a noon rally at Prescott Regional Airport, where the president is expected to speak up to 90 minutes, followed by a swing down to Tucson for a 3 p.m. event.

The reelection campaign excursions come on the heels of an Arizona event earlier this month that was canceled after Trump and his wife Melania Trump were diagnosed with coronavirus and quarantined.

Prescott city officials said in a social media post that all attendees will be temperature checked and given a mask and hand sanitizer.

Loriena Herron of Prescott camped out overnight in a parking lot, she told KTAR News 92.3 FM, to get a spot on one of the shuttles that will take her and others to the rally site.

“It’s my first rally. [I’m] very excited,” Herron said.

Trump then will meet a crowd at Tucson International Airport.

Mayor Regina Romero sent Trump a letter on Friday reminding him of the city’s mask ordinance.

Romero shared the letter on social media.

“It would be deeply unfortunate if one gathering jeopardized all the progress we have made thus far. That is why I respectfully request that the Trump campaign does everything in its capability to ensure that your local ordinances are respected and followed during your event,” Romero wrote.

Trump last visited Arizona in September when he hosted a roundtable event at the Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix.

Arizona is considered a battleground state, and the incumbent has been trailing Democrat Joe Biden in recent polling.

Biden and running mate Kamala Harris have visited Arizona once during the election cycle.

KTAR News 92.3 FM will carry Trump’s remarks live from Prescott beginning at noon.
