"I do not take my primary opponent lightly, I'm working hard to make sure we win there. But, have no doubt that, if it is Donald Trump at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30% of the vote being the Hispanic vote, I have no doubt that this may be the race of my life.
People are angry, they're upset. They feel that there's a disconnect. And, all of that frankly there's an element of nativism, as well. The first wedge that Donald Trump had that gave him notoriety was to build a wall, rapists murderers, etc. So, and if you have friends of yours or you listen to the Hispanic media in this state or in the country, you will see that it is all anti-Trump. The Hispanic community is aroused and angry in a way that I have never seen in 30 years. And so, it will be a tough campaign."
At a private fundraiser last month, the Arizona senator warned that Donald Trump as the GOP nominee could antagonize Latino voters in his state and make his reelection campaign "the race of my life."
