Former President Donald J. Trump will hold a rally in Arizona in January, a political action committee called Save America that is affiliated with the 45th president announced Thursday.
Trump will speak at 7 p.m. on Jan. 15 in Florence at the same location where the Country Thunder music festival is held. It will be his first rally appearance of 2022.
Trump’s last visit to Arizona was July 24 at a two-hour rally where he repeated his false claim that he lost the Grand Canyon State to Joe Biden due to massive voter fraud. He came to the state seven times in 2020 prior to the election.
Kari Lake, one of several Republican candidates for governor in Arizona, announced her attendance for the upcoming rally on Twitter. She was endorsed by the former president in late September.
