President Donald Trump is preparing to make his fifth appearance this year in Arizona.

The president is scheduled to speak at a Latinos for Trump event at a resort in Ahwatukee Monday to make his case to a crucial group of voters in the final stretch of the 2020 presidential campaign. Trump carried the state by 3.5 points in 2016. Arizona was long a Republican stronghold but Democrats have made inroads and it is now a top battleground. Democrat Joe Biden has said he planned to campaign in Arizona after Labor Day but he has not announced a date for a visit.
