Arizona Electors Cast Their Votes For President-Elect Biden

Arizona Democratic Party Chair Felecia Rotellini released the following statement:

 

“Today, I am honored to serve with ten extraordinary Democratic and community leaders to cast our Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris. The gravity and historic importance of this vote is immeasurable. We come together representing the diverse character and cultures of Arizona. We cast our votes, not only as representatives of our respective communities but also as Arizonans representing everyone who calls this great state home.

Joe Biden won Arizona’s eleven electoral college votes because of his broad bipartisan coalition of support. The campaign invested significant time and resources in every corner of the state to earn the overwhelming support of Democrats, Latinos, African Americans, AAPI voters, Tribal communities, and independent voters.

The campaign brought together voters of faith and even some Republicans who wanted a better future for our country. Our values were on the ballot and, as Democrats, we can celebrate the triumph of knowing a majority of Americans and Arizonans have endorsed them with their vote. But our work is just beginning anew.

Let’s follow the lead of President-elect Joe Biden who has said it is time to abandon partisan labels and come together as Americans to work together to tackle the real problems and crises facing our nation.”
