PHOENIX — A slew of candidates endorsed by Donald Trump are among the scheduled speakers at the former president’s rally in Arizona on Friday.
Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters, secretary of state candidate Mark Finchem and attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh will deliver remarks at the event at the Findlay Toyota Center in Prescott Valley.
Guest speakers will appear starting at 4 p.m. before Trump takes the stage at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 11 a.m.
Traces Gordon, a spokesman for the Prescott Valley Police Department, said agencies from across the state will help staff the rally and any protest activity.
“We have established a free speech zone right across the street from the main entrance of the event center and it will be staffed by officers to make sure attendees are safe,” Gordon told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News on Wednesday.
Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward and Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb are others with statewide connections expected to speak at the event.
The rally was originally scheduled for July 16 but was pushed back six days due to the death of Trump’s ex-wife.
The event will happen the same day Trump’s vice president, Mike Pence, is in Arizona campaigning for a Lake opponent, Karrin Taylor Robson.
Matt Benson, a Taylor Robson campaign spokesman, said Pence would be attending an event at a local employer and attend a briefing on border security while in the state.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who recently endorsed Taylor Robson, will also be at the event with Pence.
Those interested in tickets for the rescheduled Trump rally can register online.
