Arizona Democrats Are Hopeful The State Is Turning Purple

Arizona has been called a purple state by some analysts for several election cycles, but 2018 may have actually been an example of the tide turning — at least Democrats are hoping so.

Kyrsten Sinema was the first Arizona Democrat to win a U.S. Senate race in three decades, and the party had statewide victories for secretary of state and superintendent of public instruction.

That has raised optimism for 2020, locally and nationally.

The Show spoke with Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez about the party’s plans and expectations.
