ARIZONA ELECTION

Former President Obama to hold rally for Sen. Kelly, Hobbs in Arizona

Oct 30, 2022, 7:05 PM | Updated: Oct 31, 2022, 7:12 am

PHOENIX — Former President Barack Obama will hold a rally Wednesday in Phoenix with Sen. Mark Kelly, gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs and other Democratic candidates.

Set up by the Arizona Democratic Party, the name of the event is “Arizona Get Out The Vote Rally with President Obama!”

The exact location has not been announced, but the event site blocked out 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Admission is free. Tickets can be reserved online.

Obama has hit the campaign trail in recent days, visiting Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin. He is scheduled to be in Nevada on Tuesday.

The campaign blitz is an opportunity to do something he was unable to do in two midterms during his presidency: help Democrats succeed in national midterms when they already hold the White House.

President Joe Biden was in Pennsylvania on Friday with Vice President Kamala Harris and plans to be in Georgia next week, potentially in a joint rally with Obama and statewide Democratic candidates. He is currently not scheduled for a trip to Arizona before Election Day on Nov. 8.

We want to hear from you.
