Mr. Trump has campaigned in Arizona on two occasions. His first rally in Phoenix, where he spoke about illegal immigration, was attended by thousands and he most recently Mr. Trump visited Mesa, Arizona for a campaign event with more than 12,000 people in attendance. He continues to dominate all Arizona state polls and lead by wide, double digit margins in all national polls.
Treasurer DeWit added, "Our country's political elite have forgotten that this country was built with grit and hard work, and don't seem to understand the economic ramifications of the laws they pass. As a businessman, turned State Treasurer, I am a big believer that we cannot rely on politicians to put our country back on the path to prosperity. We need a conservative political outsider with financial savvy and success, who understands what it means to build a business, make payroll, and flourish during tough times. America is fortunate to have this and more in Mr. Donald J. Trump."
DeWit continued, "As someone who has spent one on one time with him, I can tell you that Mr. Trump is one of the smartest and quickest minds of our time. His business success is extraordinary. His passion for America, our veterans, and protecting our freedoms is inspiring. But what may be his most admirable quality is his willingness to give back and serve our country, and fight to see that our children and our grandchildren will have the same opportunities to live, work, and raise a family in the greatest country ever known to man, the USA. I have been proud to stand with Mr. Trump since before his campaign for President was announced and in every step along the way, and I am excited to now serve as his campaign Chairman in Arizona to ensure victory in 2016. Together, let's Make America Great Again!"
In addition to these key endorsements, the Trump campaign has expanded its Arizona operation with new hire Thayer Verschoor, Former State Senator, Senate Majority Leader, Senate Pro Tempore, who will serve as Deputy State Director under Arizona State Director Charles Munoz.
