  1. Chair Holt welcomed about 30 people to this event, including forner CD 2 candidate Mary Matiella and former AZ Dems statewide Chair Bill Roe. All present introduced themselves, being from LD 3, 9, 10 and 11, and 3 Dem staffers Sierra Yamanaka, Chesney Richter & Kim Khoury. Jo said that Pima County had 70.55 % turnout in the General, that AZ would be a “battleground state” in 2010 Presidential election. She showed maps of how some areas of Pima County that flipped blue, others flipped red. Krysten Sinema won Pima County by 60,692 votes and Bill Roe stated that $90 M was spent on that race. Jo also talked about CD 2 race with Ann Kirkpatrick winning and the LD 10 House race which defeated incumbent Republican Todd Clodfelter (4,019 votes to Domingo DeGrazia). She attributed success to 10,000 volunteers here (300,000 statewide), partnerships, 1.3 M + doors knocked, 1.5 M + calls made, 1 M text messages sent. Discussion followed about what to do next re: AZ Governor’s race, how re-energize volunteers, how to educate voters about elections, what Dems stand for, what AZ Legislature does, and to watch out for voter rights suppression by Republicans.
