Pence returns to Arizona for final push to flip liberal-leaning cities

In an effort to pick up 유권자 from more progressive counties that voted against the president in 2016, 마이크 펜스 부통령 is returning to the key battleground state of 애리조나 on Friday.

two separate campaign events, Pence will make a final pitch to Flagstaff and Tucson voters just four days ahead of the 대통령 선거.

DEMS MAKE EARLY-VOTING HISTORY AGAINST ARIZONA REPUBLICANS

Marking his fifth trip to the Copper State this year, the vice president is scheduled to appear at a hangar rally in the morning at the Flagstaff Pulliam Airport and will be at Tucson International Airport in the afternoon.

Coconino and Pima counties both supported former Secretary of State 힐러리 클린턴 4 년 전, though Arizona overall helped to elect 트럼프 대통령.

The president won Arizona 으로 91,000 votes in 2016, capturing more than 48% of ballots compared with Clinton’s 44%.

The popularity of 민주주의 nominee 조 바이든 paired with a statewide demographic shift, 하나, has put Democrats back on the map.

Friday is the last day for Arizonans to vote early and Democrats are reportedly greatly outpacing 공화당 원 in casting their ballots.

Although many Republicans plan to go to the polls in person on Election Day, Democrats are taking full advantage of early voting in their quest to win the historically red state for what would be only the second time since 1952.

게다가, recent polling shows Biden holding a small but noticeable lead.

Pence’s trip is part of a larger campaign push in crucial battleground states, though somewhat hindered by the announcement that multiple aides of the vice president had tested positive for the coronavirus over the last week.

그만큼 백악관 told reporters that the vice president is exempt from quarantine under guidelines for essential workers and has since tested negative.

The Hill reported Thursday that Pence’s tour is meant to help struggling GOP senators make up for time lost as they held hearings in 워싱턴, D.C. to push through the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the 대법원.

Under Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, political activity has been exempted from COVID-19 restrictions in Arizona, though attendees at Pence’s events will have their temperatures taken and be given masks.
