On Oct. 12, early voting officially began in Arizona ahead of November’s consequential elections.

And on that morning, the editorial board of the Arizona Republic made the rare move to print a front page editorial. Its title was powerful: “Democracy is under attack.”

The Show regularly checks in with the Republic’s editorial board to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

To discuss the piece, The Show spoke with the Republic’s editorial page editor Elvia Díaz.
