Former President Donald Trump announces Jan. 15 Arizona rally, the first of 2022

Former President Donald J. Trump will hold a rally in Arizona in January, which a political action committee called Save America.

Trump will speak at 7 p.m. on Jan. 15 in Florence at the same location where the Country Thunder music festival is held. It will be his first rally appearance of 2022.

Florence, about 70 miles southeast of Downtown Phoenix, is in the heart of Pinal County, a Republican stronghold that Trump won by 17 percentage points in 2020. Trump’s last visit to Arizona was July 24. He visited the state seven times prior to the 2020 election.

Kari Lake, one of several Republican candidates for governor in Arizona, announced her attendance for the upcoming rally on Twitter. “President Trump is coming to Arizona! His first rally of 2022 will be in Florence, Arizona. Arizona can’t wait to see our favorite president.”

Arizona will also host another rally on the same day regarding equal voting rights. MLK Jr.’s granddaughter Yolanda Renee King will join her mother Arndrea Waters King and father Martin Luther King III, the oldest surviving child of MLK Jr., in Phoenix on Jan. 15 to call on Congress to end the Senate filibuster and pass legislation such as the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
