LAVEEN, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Former President Barack Obama is stopping by Cesar Chavez High School in Laveen Village for a Democratic rally this week, just days before next Tuesday’s election.

In particular, Obama is looking to shore up support for incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly and gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs in a “get out the vote” style event Wednesday evening, encouraging voters to turn out in massive numbers. Other elected officials, including Republican Mesa Mayor John Giles and Congressman Ruben Gallego, will be in attendance. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the event starting at 6:30 p.m.

Obama’s stop comes weeks after former President Donald Trump hosted a rally in Mesa for GOP candidates.
