Donald Trump launches ad targeting Arizona voters

Mar 11, 2016, 5:04 AM | Updated: 11:48 am

PHOENIX — Donald Trump has set his sights on Arizona two weeks ahead of the state’s presidential preference election with a new campaign ad.

The new 42-second political advertisement released online features Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and gives Arizonans information on how to vote.

“I’m very excited for March 22, as that is the date that the republican primary is coming to your state,” she says in the video. “Please come out and support my father, Donald J. Trump.”

The video includes a link to Trump’s campaign website and promises voters can go there to find individual polling locations and more information on the state’s presidential preference election.

“Most importantly, on March 22 come out and support my father as we aim to make America great again,” she said.

Arizona has a winner-take-all policy for presidential preference elections. Trump will hope to win all of the state’s 58 Republican delegates.

The New York billionaire stands a good chance of winning the delegates. A Thursday poll had him leading all other GOP candidates in Arizona. His closest rival, Ted Cruz, trailed by 14 points..

Voter registration is closed and Arizona does not have an open primary. Registered independents will not be able to vote in the preference election.
