TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is bringing his presidential campaign to Arizona.

The Republican first-term senator is set to headline a rally Friday afternoon at Arizona State University in Tempe.

Paul faces a crowded Republican primary race that includes former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio.

He will also be joined by Kelli Ward, an Arizona state senator aiming to run against longtime Sen. John McCain.

McCain, who has spent nearly three decades in the Senate, announced last month that he would be seeking re-election.

The Republican Party of Maricopa County is hosting the event.
