Dems Start the Show with Eckstrom, DeConcini

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 at 7:48 PM

A glimpse into a world I rarely enter—the Pima County Democratic Party election night celebration.

First, it's packed house at El Casino Ballroom. The usual suspects, along with the candidates. In the house is U.S. Senate candidate Richard Carmona, South Tucson Mayor Jennifer Eckstrom and a few Ron Barber staffers. So far.

Pima County Democratic Party Chair Jeff Rogers just announced that former U.S. Senator Dennis DeConcini is going to address the crowd soon. U.S Congressman Raul Grijalva is making his way to the ballroom from Yuma and is expected to address folks around 9 p.m.

We'll be back.
