Arizona is not a blue state – yet.
Races in the 2020 election were competitive up and down the ballot. Voter turnout percentage was at the highest since 1980, propelling Joe Biden to be the first Democratic presidential candidate to win Arizona since 1996. The turnout was the most voters to ever participate statewide and in Maricopa County.
Arizona will also have two Democrats as U.S. senators for the first time in more than 50 years in Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly, and Democrats won a second seat on five-member Arizona Corporation Commission.
Arizona Democratic Party Chair Felecia Rotellini cited those victories in saying that Democrats had a banner year.
“We are a blue state,” she proclaimsed.
