Biden and Harris were first to arrive, with Harris landing at Sky Harbor Airport just after 11 a.m. and Biden a short time later. Watch video of their arrival in the player below.

The pair then spoke to a group of pool reporters, with Biden sharing his thoughts on the Vice Presidential debate, as well as President Trump's comments about not planning to be involved in any virtual debates. Watch in the player below.

Pence arrived shortly after Biden and Harris, touching down in Phoenix just before 12:30 p.m. where he was greeted by Gov. Doug Ducey. See our live video of the arrival below.

It's unusual to have both presidential campaigns holding events in the same area on the same day, but it shows just how important Arizona is to this year's election.

The event with Pence will take place at Peoria's TYR Tactical, a military gear and tactical equipment warehouse, on Thursday afternoon.

Exact details of the Biden and Harris visit have not been released. However, Biden's team confirmed the Democrats will meet with American Indian tribal leaders in Phoenix.
