Arizona currently falls into the category of important battleground states in the 2020 presidential election. Despite the Grand Canyon State’s reputation as conservative-leaning, some analysts are speculating that it’s very much in play for the Democrats this election cycle.
On Wednesday, the Trump and Biden campaigns wound up in Arizona. This marked one of the rare times that both campaigns have been in the same state together; however, the Trump and Biden campaigns also nearly crossed paths in Florida (another battleground state) not too long ago.
The final pitches made to Arizonians come as millions of Americans cast their votes in this year’s election; however, the messages of the Trump campaign and Biden campaign significantly varied from one another, per Washington Examiner.
The Final Battle in Arizona
Yesterday, President Trump spent time in Pheonix and Goodyear City.
The president spoke directly to supporters both times, noting what his re-election would entail for the nation. A return back to normal life is something the president promised, as are conservative policies that Americans have benefited from under the Trump administration.

Meanwhile, Democrat vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris also spent time in Arizona. Harris campaigned in the heavily left-leaning city of Tuscon; during this time, she shared remarks at a drive-in rally and later spoke with Hispanic business owners.
Similarly to the president, Harris also later went to Maricopa County; this is a county that President Trump won in 2016 and one that the Democrats are hoping will go to Biden-Harris in 2020.
Getting Out the Vote
Getting out the vote in Arizona and other states across the nation is deeply paramount to the 2020 presidential election.
Right now, the Trump campaign remains confident that their base is more enthusiastic about him than Biden’s base is about Biden. Republicans and conservatives continue to note the difference in attendance for Trump events versus Biden events.

As the 45th president campaigns extensively across the nation, he’s urging Americans to cast their votes so that four more years can happen. Data about the election shows that tens of millions of Americans have already voted in this election; however, there are still five days remaining prior to November 3.
