So last night Hillary Clinton held a large rally at the Arizona State University campus last night. The crowd was estimated at 10-15 thousand attendees, though Cactus Politics received the figure of over 25thousand including the overflow crowd from the Secret Service.
Before Clinton spoke, predictably Ann Kirkpatrick, Rueben Gallego and Gabby Gifford all addressed the crowd. Hillary’s apprance was delayed by about an hour yet she still took the time to greet and take photos with donors and VIPs backstage before the rally while the attendees waited for upwards of 8 hours.

Once she began speaking she rallied the crown in support of Democrat US Senate candidate Ann Kirkpatrick who trails Republican John McCain in every poll according to RealClearPolitics.
The rally came on the heels of Mike Pence’s rally in Mesa, Arizona earlier in the day and Donald Trump’s apperance in the Phoenix last saturday, and the Clinton rally looked considerably larger. So, in the tradition of presidential politics this type of showing by the Clinton campaign cannot go unanswered by the Trump camp.

It remains to be seen whether or not Donald Trump himself will return to Arizona for an eigth time. Currently the controversial GOP nominee is not scheduled to come back west of the Mississippi for the remainder of the election.
