As President Trump visits the Valley, Sinema continues with campaign appearances

PHOENIX (KSAZ) -- As President Donald Trump holds a rally in Mesa in hopes of boosting GOP senatorial candidate Martha McSally in a race to succeed Jeff Flake in the U.S. Senate, Democratic senatorial candidate Kyrsten Sinema is also out and about on Friday.

Trump is hoping his star power and focus on national security will boost McSally. Meanwhile, Sinema, who volunteered at a local food bank on Friday, said she is laser-focused on issues she says will matter the most to swing voters: improving health care and protecting social security and medicare.

"We believe in our campaign, in addition to fighting hard for health care benefits and social security benefits Arizonans rely on, we also have to give back to our community and that is what we are doing today," said Sinema.

At the Food Bank, Sinema, as well as some Valley military veterans who support her, filled bags with cans of food.

While Trump is in the Valley, Sinema is not calling in high-profile supporters from outside Arizona, choosing instead to hold two other Get Out the Early Vote events.
