Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno stumped for the President in Arizona on Monday, telling voters it is “very necessary” to reelect Trump in november.
Morena was among the many speakers to voice his support for the president at the “Latinos for Trump” event in Phoenix, sharing his personal experiences as a Mexican American and former small business owner.
“We all know where we’ve been. It’s necessary to focus on today and the future, and it’s very necessary to vote for President Trump,” he said, according to AZCentral.com.
Moreno, who purchased Phoenix-based Outdoor Systems advertising in 1984 and turned it into a multi-billion-dollar company, said a second Trump term would help small business owners.
A Vietnam War veteren, Moreno grew up in a conservative family and has been a longtime Republican candidate supporter and donor.
Monday’s event — amid reports showing Joe Biden lagging in Latino support — was the president’s fifth campaign visit this year to the state where polling shows him slightly behind Biden, The Hill reported.
In 2016, he beat Hillary Clinton in the state by 4%.
