I got a call today from Fred DuVal, who is stumping for votes for the Democratic National Committee slot being vacated by Joe Rios. This would not be DuVal’s first stint on the committee, having served as an “at-large” member in the 1990’s.
DuVal is promising to get more resources for Arizona, something is is very capable of delivering on owing to his already strong network within the DNC and the rest of the Democratic party in DC.
The one concern I have is that Rios was one of the few Hispanic voices in among the State Party’s officers. Randy Camacho recently stepped aside as well, leaving Vice Chair Tony Gonzales of Flagstaff as the only current officer of Hispanic descent.
The party will be electing the new national committee member in January.
