Former President Donald Trump will host his first rally in 2022 in Florence, Arizona, according to a release from his Save America PAC.
The event, which will take place on January 15, will begin Trump’s efforts to boost his endorsed candidates during the 2022 midterm election season in the state he narrowly lost to President Joe Biden.
According to Save America PAC’s website, doors at the rally will open at 2:00 p.m., with the former commander-in-chief taking the stage at 7:00 p.m.
Secretary of State candidate Mark Finchem, state Senate contender Anthony Kern, State Senator Wendy Rogers (R-Flagstaff), and GOP gubernatorial frontrunner Kari Lake have all received Trump’s “complete and total endorsement.”
“President Trump is coming to Arizona! His first rally of 2022 will be in Florence, Arizona. Arizona can’t wait to see our favorite president,” tweeted Lake, who Trump endorsed earlier this year.

Trump, in connection with Turning Point USA, also held a rally in the battleground state in June.
“So my fellow Americans, our movement is the greatest in American history. The 2022 mid-terms are the next phase of the battle, and we will not stop there. We will take back the House, we will take back the Senate and take back that gorgeous White House. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again,” he said.
Notably, the former president has not weighed in on the state’s U.S. Senate race, where GOP candidates are battling to take on Democratic Senator Mark Kelly. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who Trump has criticized, and first-time candidate Blake Masters are viewed as the frontrunners of the competition.
Earlier this year, Trump attended a fundraiser for Masters at the president’s Palm Springs, Florida, Mar-A-Lago resort.
