Our partners in Arizona made more than 30 million voter contacts (1.6 million doors, 20 million calls, and 7 million texts yielding 1.2 million commitments on the C4 side alone). In addition to flipping the Presidential race by 10,457 votes, and helping flip a Senate race, they also flipped a State House and a State Senate seat, coming three seats shy of flipping both chambers! Arizona also elected the first Latina to win a statewide office, who will now be serving on the AZ Corporation Commission, which regulates utilities including fossil fuels and renewable energy.
We supported our partners to expand beyond their core Latinx voting base in Maricopa County. MVP helped seed several new organizations led by Black, Native, APIA, and rural organizers across the state and helped drive these communities to record turnout. The Navajo Nation saw a voter turnout increase of 25%, even as they were devastated by COVID. Their work has made Arizona one of our most amazing success stories.
Winning Arizona in 2020 was a battle more than a decade in the making. MVP is going to double down on this crucial sunbelt battleground, which will feature a competitive Governor’s race and a Senate rematch in 2022.
