WATCH: The Takeaway Presents: Every Vote Counts — Arizona
Long considered reliably red, Arizona has voted for the republican nominee in all but one of the last 17 U.S. presidential elections. But recent polling has indicated a shift in demographics, making the Grand Canyon state as a potential wild card in the 2020 election.
The 2018 midterm election saw Arizona participating in the “blue wave,” with the historic election of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and this year, another Senate seat could be up for grabs with Democrat Mark Kelly presenting a dominant challenge to incumbent Sen. Martha McSally.
In anticipation of this exciting race, the Takeaway’s Amy Walter spoke to Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who has supported several counties’ decisions to run elections entirely by mail, as well as KJZZ's Steve Goldstein. Plus, southwestern soul singer Just Najima joined for a special musical performance.
