The Donald Trump campaign continues to bring big names to Arizona.

Only three days away from the presidential election, supporters are stumping hard for their candidates. 

Dr. Ben Carson made two stops in Phoenix this afternoon.

Carson's first appearance was slated for 2:25 p.m. at the Arizona Republican Party Headquarters, however, aircraft trouble delayed Carson by a little more than an hour.

“We’ve been sitting down and keeping our mouths shut. It’s time to stand up and open our mouths,” said the former Republican presidential candidate.

With the direction of the country facing big changes just days away, Carson fired up the crowd to make sure voters get to the polls on Nov. 8.

“There should be no indecision at this point. The decision should clearly be president Donald Trump,” said Dolly Bayne, a Trump supporter.

Bayne had her mind made up long ago. But Carson is urging all voters to look at the bigger picture.

“This election is not about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. It’s about the direction of the country. And I would say, please look at the platforms of both parties, and listen to the solutions of the two major candidates for some of our major problems,” Carson told ABC15.

The candidates are looking at Arizona as a key state in this election.

“It’s right on the edge in terms of which way it’s going to go, so it makes it a very important state,” Carson said.

This appearance comes one day after Donald Trump Jr. campaigned for his father in Gilbert.


Sunday, former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will also be in Phoenix to try to sway some of that vote. He’s expected to rally for Hillary Clinton at Central High School at 11:45 a.m.
