Parties Focus on Flipping Seats in November Election

A discussion with Jo Holt and David Eppihimer, leaders of the Pima County Democratic and Republican parties.

With the focus on November's general election, speculation continues to build on whether crucial congressional seats will flip from red to blue. Understandably, we received very different responses from the leaders of the Democratic and Republican parties in Pima County, Jo Holt and David Eppihimer.

"I have too many people walking into my headquarters every day and calling us on the phone … saying: 'I haven't been active for a long time. I need to get active. I need to help.' And they're being motivated by what's happening at the federal level," Holt said.

"And we have Democrats walk into our office every day changing their registration because they say their party has gone too far left," Eppihimer said.
