Two high-profile Republicans are heading to the Valley for events with Senate candidate Martha McSally. 

According to a release sent by McSally’s office, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will be in Gilbert at 2:30 p.m. Friday for a public event at the Falls Event Center, near Baseline and Greenfield roads.

McSally is currently locked in a tight race for Senate against Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema.

The Friday event is open to the public and aimed at getting people to vote in the upcoming election, according to organizers.

Romney is currently running for a Senate seat in Utah as well, after winning the Republican primary for the upcoming election.

Former President George W. Bush will also be in town later this month to support McSally, according to The Hill.

The Hill reports the October 19 event will cost $2,700 to attend, and $5,000 for a picture with the former president.

Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema is also attending several events over the next month, including debates at Univision and PBS.
