The former New York City mayor stopped by the Phoenix Mexican restaurant Rosita's Place, where he sat with diners. 

"Arizona is a crucial battleground state, but I know you don’t often see presidential candidates around here," Bloomberg said. "The fact is: President Trump is about the only one spending money here and in swing states around the country – and that’s a big problem for our party."

Several tweets posted to his campaign's account also addressed Arizona voters. 

"Democrats have a great chance to win Arizona, and turn it from red to blue – and that’s what Mike is working to do as he stops in Phoenix to meet with voters and file to get on the ballot. #Bloomberg2020," read one tweet.

Another tweet read, "America needs someone who is ready to take on the tough fights – and win. Mike is that person, and he has officially filed in Arizona to be on the ballot for the Democratic primary."
