Watch: Former President Donald Trump holds rally in Prescott Valley with Arizona GOP hopefuls
PHOENIX — Former President Donald Trump’s rally in Prescott Valley with some of his preferred Republican candidates from Arizona is underway.
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.
Trump is expected to speak at 7 p.m.
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 coincides with Trump’s vice president, Mike Pence, in Arizona campaigning for a Lake opponent, Karrin Taylor Robson.
The Arizona primary is among Trump’s last opportunities to settle scores and install allies to lead states that may prove decisive if he decides to run again in 2024.
Trump and Pence were also at odds in the primary for Georgia governor, where the Pence-backed incumbent Brian Kemp easily defeated former U.S. Sen. David Perdue, who had Trump’s support.
