PHOENIX (AP) — Presidential candidates are focused on Arizona as the state’s primary looms, with four of the five remaining Democratic and Republican hopefuls planning visits to the state in advance of Tuesday’s election.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders plan campaign stops as they try to win the Democratic nomination. Sanders appears Thursday near Flagstaff and plans Tucson and metro Phoenix events Friday. He held a campaign rally Tuesday night in Phoenix without mentioning a string of losses that night in primaries that saw Clinton’s delegate lead grown.
Clinton plans a visit to Phoenix on Monday.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is holding a rally at a Phoenix Christian college Friday, and GOP businessman Donald Trump plans a Saturday morning rally in the upscale Phoenix suburb of Fountain Hills. Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio hasn’t announced Arizona visits.
Television viewers are getting a taste of the campaign as Clinton and Sanders run ads focusing on key demographics they hope will support them — Clinton an ad featuring a young girl worried her immigrant parents will be deported, and Sanders running ads promising free college education, stronger Social Security financing and universal health care. Sanders’ campaign announced three new ads featuring Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva on Thursday. Cruz is also running ads in the state.
