Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump rallied in Arizona for the seventh time in his campaign.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is stopping by Phoenix Wednesday to drum up support, proving that in this election, Arizona could be a battleground state.

Former Gov. Jan Brewer spoke at the Trump rally this weekend and acknowledged Clinton vying for Valley votes.

“Hillary Clinton thinks Arizona is in play this November. And Arizona will turn from a red state to a blue state," Brewer said, and when the crowd booed that statement, she said "Don't boo - vote!"

Rona Brabant of Phoenix came to the rally. She said she sees the demographic changing in the state, but doesn’t think Clinton will win.

The younger tend to be more blue, so there is that difference," Brabant said, mentioning that much of Arizona's population used to be older, retired and typically conservative. "However I know that some of my friends, in the last election, they really believed that Obama was going to change things and they were all very disappointed."

Several recent polls show Hillary in the lead in Arizona, however the New York Times forecasts Trump winning.

Tim Kaine will also hold a rally in Tucson Thursday.
