Trump Jr., McSally Make Late Push To Voters in Yuma

Nov 2, 2020

With just more than 24 hours left until Election Day, Donald Trump Jr. and U.S. Sen. Martha McSally made a late pitch to voters that President Donald Trump and McSally should win on Tuesday.

Speaking at the Yuma County Fairgrounds Sunday night, Trump Jr. called on supporters to vote and get others to vote to keep Arizona red.

“You’ve got to get Martha and the rest of the Republican ticket in Arizona a big win!" Trump Jr. told the crowd of about a couple hundred supporters. "We’ve got to get Donald Trump four more years to fight for America! To fight for our freedoms!” 

Both the Biden and Trump campaigns are looking at Arizona and Yuma to bring them a win on Tuesday.

A Sunday night New York Times poll has Vice President Joe Biden leading President Trump by six points.

McSally trails her Democratic opponent, Mark Kelly, by about 4.5 points.

The senator is on what she calls the #AZFighter Tour in 11 cities across the state Sunday and Monday.

McSally said the eyes of the country are on Arizona.

“The country is depending on us," she said. "Donald Trump cannot win re-election without going through Arizona. We’re gonna deliver for him. President Trump is counting on us. Are you gonna come through? The country is counting on us to save the Senate majority. Are we gonna come through?" she said to cheers. 

Trump supporter Tonya Wright of Yuma said she is glad the Trump and McSally campaigns are focusing on the border.

“The border is very important to keep it safe," Wright said. "I really think that they are giving it the attention that it really needs, at least on the Republican side.” 

Among the local elected officials at the event Sunday were Yuma Mayor Doug Nicholls, U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar and Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot.
