Jill Biden made a campaign stop in Tucson on Saturday as part of the “Women for Biden-Harris” tour.

Grassroots group Arizona List held the pro-choice rally featuring her at the Fox Theater.

The first lady addressed the crowd with concerns for women.

“Too often, we still ask women to choose between different parts of themselves. And all around us, there are extremists working harder than ever to drag us back to a past that we thought was long over," she said.

She also said Arizona was essential to winning the 2020 presidential election.

During the event, some pro-Palestinian protestors interrupted her speech to criticize President Joe Biden.
