Starting now, I will be blogging on the LD9 Facebook page – www.facebook.com/LD9Democrats – about news that I get as a delegate to the Democratic National convention — along with my awesome fellow delegates from LD9 Gabriella Cazares-Kelly, Candidate for Pima Recorder and JP Martin.
I just learned that 2 people from Arizona will speak at the convention – Jeff Jeans of Sedona, a former conservative Republican, and Tucson’s own Gabby Giffords.
- Yesterday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were briefed on the coronavirus by public health experts, and delivered remarks during which they called for a three-month nationwide mandate to wear a mask. The campaign also released a new ad echoing Biden’s call for 50 state mandates.
On Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, Joe issued a statement stating that in a Biden-Harris Administration, closing the pay gap will be a top priority. He wrote: “We will build back better because Black women are the backbones of their families, communities, our economy, and our country.”
- Joe released a statement on the agreement between Israel and the UAE, recognizing the historic step they have taken in bridging the deep divides of the Middle East.
A Marist poll has Biden with a significant lead at 53% and Trump at 42%.
JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY
@JoeBiden: The hard truth is Black women still only get paid 62 cents for every dollar white men make. It’s unacceptable. My administration will work to close the pay gap for Black women and create an economy where everyone gets a fair return for their work. #BlackWomensEqualPayDay
