Bernie Sanders was in Arizona Tuesday, speaking to crowds in Tucson and Tempe. The Vermont senator and former presidential candidate stumped at rallies for David Garcia, the Democrat running for governor.

While on stage at the University of Arizona, Sanders said that in 2014, voter turnout was historically low — and Republicans swept Congress.

“If in this election, young people vote at the same ratio as older people do, we are going to transform Arizona,” he said, to applause. “And we are going to transform the United States of America.”

A record-breaking number of Arizona voters participated in this year’s primary election, fueled by a large increase in Democrats casting ballots.
