Dear DNC Member,

I hope you are having a good start to your week. Please find the DNC's statement below on the changes that are being made to the Arizona debate.

As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to me or my office. 


Jason Rae
Democratic National Committee

“At the request of both campaigns and out of an abundance of caution, there will be no live audience at the Arizona debate taking place on Sunday, March 15th.  The DNC has been in regular communication with local health officials and the Mayor's office, which advised that we could proceed as planned. Nevertheless, our number one priority has and will continue to be the safety of our staff, campaigns, Arizonans and all those involved in the debate.  We will continue to remain in daily contact with all stakeholders through Sunday.”- DNC Communications Director Xochitl Hinojosa
