President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a campaign-style rally on Tuesday, August 22 at the Phoenix Convention Center at 7 p.m. Congressman Raul Grijalva announced that he will lead a protest of the event.
Trump is rumored to be announcing his support for an unnamed challenger to Sen. Jeff Flake.
Phoenix rally attendees must register to obtain tickets. Some Democratic Party operatives have been encouraging members of the Party to order tickets and not show up to the event in order to make it appear as if the president has little support.
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton went further and issued a statement on Wednesday calling for the president to delay the event.
