2 days after Donald Trump’s visit, Mike Pence returning to Arizona
PHOENIX – President Donald Trump’s appearance in Arizona on Wednesday won’t be the Republican ticket’s final visit of the campaign.
Vice President Mike Pence announced Wednesday he is coming back Friday, four days before Election Day, for rallies in Flagstaff and Tucson.
He’ll appear first at the Flagstaff Pulliam Airport at 11:30 a.m. Doors for the event will open at 9:30 a.m. and close at 11 a.m.
Pence will then fly south for a 2:30 p.m. appearance at Tucson International Airport. Doors open there at 12:30 p.m. and close at 2 p.m.
As a battleground state, Arizona has hosted frequent candidate visits, mostly from the Republican side.
While Trump was making his seventh trip to the state Wednesday, Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris was in Arizona for the second time.
Presidential challenger Joe Biden has been to the Grand Canyon State once, in a joint visit with Harris on Oct. 8, the same date of Pence’s last visit.
The vice president also made trips to Arizona in August and September.
