Pima County Democrats hold gathering to stress importance of blue vote this election

TUCSON - Last week, when President Donald Trump visited the Old Pueblo, Pima County Democrats held their own gathering at Menlo Park.

Friday afternoon, they met again in congruence with Vice President Mike Pence's visit, passing out signs and expressing the importance of turning Arizona blue this year.

"We just want to give a really warm and welcoming 'Tucson hello' to the vice president," said Pima County Democrats Executive Director Joshua Polacheck.

That greeting included many political signs of democratic candidates.

"Biden/Harris signs. Mark Kelly signs. All the signs of people like, 'Oh it has already been taken," Polacheck said. "Gabriella Cazares-Kelly who is running for Pima County Recorder."

Earlier, a group of Democrats held a press conference via Zoom, saying how the country needs Joe Biden during these trying times.

"They will restore the pandemic response team which was dismantled by Trump for no reason," the said during the meeting.

Democrats at Menlo Park said the best way to let your voice be known is to get out and vote.

"Think about everyone who fought for the American right to vote and make sure exercise that vote," Palacheck said. "Because your future, our future and your children's future depend on it, vote Biden/Harris and vote Democrat up and down the ballot."

Pima County Democrats said signs are available at their headquarters.

They will also be giving free rides to help voters get to the polls.
