Pima County Recorder campaigns for Biden 2024
TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Pima County Recorder Gabriella Cázares-Kelly has taken it upon herself to reach voters President Joe Biden normally couldn’t.
Rather than work for President Biden’s campaign team, she decided to pay herself $15 an hour, working 40 hours a week.
His efforts caught the attention of locals.
Data from the Census Bureau’s overlaid Tohono O’Odham Tribal Nation subdivisions reveals that Cázares-Kelly’s campaign contrasts sharply with President Biden’s own campaign.
His campaign had a significant boost in Indigenous and Latino communities.
Cázares-Kelly admits she was afraid to embark on the advocacy journey.
She had only one paid employee, fearing that she would not be able to pay the worker.
In the campaign, money is not always guaranteed. Cázares-Kelly makes it work.
Compared to Biden, the comparison is even starker — Cázares-Kelly’s strength with Native and Latino voters stands in direct contrast to many Biden/R ticket dispatchers in the whiter parts of the Tucson metro. Considering Biden got roughly the same vote, share this instructive. pic.twitter.com/0Gv69lGIiw
