Arizona Democratic Party Statement On A Historic Election

Chair Felecia Rotellini issued the following statement: 

“Arizona Democrats have made history. The Grand Canyon State is now blue.

We now have two Democratic Senators, an achievement we have not seen in over 50 years. And Arizona has delivered its 11 electoral college votes to now President-elect Joe Biden.

We are a part of the broadest coalition ever assembled by a Democratic presidential nominee in Arizona. From leaders like our Congressional Delegation, our Mayors and our state legislators, to voters from all walks of life and every corner of our state, people of faith and conscience— we’ve built the kind of team we needed to succeed.

I want to thank the Arizona Democratic Party staff, Mission For Arizona and the Arizona Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee for their tireless work and our volunteers and community organizers for their commitment and perseverance in this election and in elections past.

I want to acknowledge our Democratic Counties and Legislative Districts for their resilience and leadership. Our teams across the state ran an extraordinary early voting program and an unprecedented “get out the vote” effort that led to Arizonans casting more votes in early voting than cast in all of 2016.

Thank you to all of our candidates, up and down the ballot, for continuing the fight for Arizona families. Your courage and fortitude paved the way for so many victories and this record voter turnout.

Finally, thank you to the voters of Arizona. These victories truly transcend party politics. Democrats, Republicans, and Independents came together to elect leaders that will put the people first. The future looks bright for our great state and nation.”
