Endless line of supporters not dissuaded, as they wait hours to hear Donald Trump
If you weren’t fortunate enough to have been at the Prescott Valley Event Center for the Trump rally Tuesday, scroll through this Daily Courier photo gallery to get a sense of the excitement generated by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during his appearance in Prescott Valley. People waited in line for hours to hear Trump.
A large screen jumbotron, typically used for sporting events, was provided for the outdoor crowd unable to enter the Prescott Valley Event Center, which was filled to its 7,500 standing area capacity. As a seated concert venue, the auditorium holds a capacity crowd of 6,200. It was a balmy 70 ° making the wait and time outside pleasurable, with strangers in line, united in a cause, amiably chatting.
Arizona elected officials, current and former, were on hand to greet Donald Trump. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who has appeared with the GOP presidential nominee at numerous national events, was on stage, as was former Gov. Jan Brewer. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, now seeking a U.S. House seat in CD 1, was among the throng who were onstage with Arizona State Treasurer Jeff DeWit, who is the Trump campaign’s national chairman and state Rep. Phil Lovas, Trump’s state chairman.
This event marks Donald Trump’s sixth appearance in Arizona, where he continually draws massive crowds of ardent supporters.
The Daily Courier reporter Scott Orr covered the event under the headline “Trump whips Prescott Valley crowd into a frenzy.”
