Pence Nephew in Yuma: Trump is the Right Choice For Latinos

The nephew of Vice President Mike Pence was in Yuma on Monday night at a Latinos For Trump event. 

John Pence said President Donald Trump is the right choice for Latino voters in November. 

Pence, a senior advisor for the Trump campaign, spoke on Monday before a crowd of mostly older white supporters in Yuma but said his group is working on the ground in Arizona to register Latinos and get out the vote.

“It’s great to be here in Yuma with Latinos For Trump, folks from the Hispanic community here that see this president, see his commitment to put America first for every community, to fight for American jobs,”  Pence told KAWC. 

With 35 days until the election and the first presidential debate scheduled for tonight, the campaigns for Trump and Democrat Joe Biden are paying more attention to voters in Arizona than in recent elections.
