Congressman Gosar, Arizona Republican Chairwoman Talk Registering More GOP Voters in Yuma

Ahead of President Donald Trump’s visit to Yuma this week, local Republicans gathered today to focus to register more GOP voters. 

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar and Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward met with volunteers at the Yuma County GOP office.

They called it a Trump Victory Leadership Initiative event aimed at registering Republican voters for November. Gosar said he’s pleased with the numbers he’s seeing.

“This is a critical state," Gosar told KAWC. "The president’s gotta win it. And he will win it. I think we’ll see a resurgence of the red.” 

Gosar says Trump’s the best leader for Arizona because of his focus on border security.

Trump is scheduled to speak at 2 p.m. at the Joe Foss Hangar in an official campaign event Tuesday.
