Journalists roundtable: Election season ramps up amid hectic 2020

How issues related to the pandemic and civil unrest could influence voters and candidates.

Amid a pandemic, a recession and ongoing civil unrest, Arizona’s primary election is less than a month away. An already hectic 2020 presents a lot for voters to consider. To unpack the issues that may influence their decisions, Lorraine Rivera got analysis from Tucson Sentinel editor Dylan Smith and Green Valley News/Sahuarita Sun editor Dan Shearer. Their discussion touched upon the public health and economic concerns stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as how calls to defund the police are being received by some candidates and the public.
