In a message to Arizona Democrats, Joe Biden declares that “the very soul of America is at stake.” The murder of George Floyd is “outrageous and enraging.” He calls for “real leadership right now” to “root out this systemic racism.”

He emphasizes the importance of keeping a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives and winning a majority in the US Senate. “Arizona is so damn important as a battleground state–the Latino community is so consequential,” he says. He says Democrats must make sure that US Senate candidate Mark Kelly and Democrats all across Arizona are successful in November.
