What Does Donald Trump's Victory Mean for Arizona?

Plus, polling problems in Douglas; young immigrants' thoughts on the future.

Arizona drew national attention for becoming a battleground state in the lead-up to the election, but the state ended up holding its pattern and voting red.

President-elect Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton defied predictions, both nationally and in Arizona, with many pollsters giving the Democrat an advantage in the state. They were wrong.

Four counties in the state – Pima, Santa Cruz, Apache and Coconino – favored Clinton. And while Democratic Congressman Raúl Grijalva won re-election unopposed, many key races in the state landed in the laps of Republicans, including Sen. John McCain and Congresswoman Martha McSally.

On Arizona Week we ask Republican and Democratic leaders how Trump’s election will affect Arizona.

We also take a closer look at what went wrong at a polling place in Douglas, where hundreds were left waiting in line to vote when ballots ran out.

We also speak with young immigrants in Arizona benefiting from an executive order called DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, about their future in a Trump presidency.

On the program

  • Bill Beard, Pima County Republican Party
  • Raúl Grijalva, Democrat, U.S. representative from Arizona
