GILBERT – Donald Trump Jr. took Republican supporters to the water on Friday, urging them to vote as he stood beneath the iconic Gilbert Water Tower.
Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a tug of war over voters in Arizona, a state that has voted for a Democrat for president only once since 1948.

“We have been able to get out there, we have been able to meet these incredible people who have that hope in their eye that we can get someone in the White House who can break this up,” Trump Jr. said to about 100 in his second Arizona stop in little more than a week.

Terryn Barker, a Trump supporter from Laveen, said there is no way Arizona will swing blue.

“I don’t think it’s a battleground state,” she said, “I think when the polls come out, he’s going to be leading in a lot of states.”

The water tower is the center of this southeast Valley town, once considered one of the fastest growing communities in the country.

“Let’s keep fighting, we’re going to win on Tuesday and it’s because of you,” Trump Jr. said.

Trump and Clinton, along with their surrogates, have alternated visits to Arizona in the waning days of the election cycle.
