ARIZONA 360

Season 3, Episode 40 of 50

TRUMP VISIT & LATINO SUPPORT: With less than two weeks until Election Day, President Trump held back-to-back rallies in Tucson and Prescott this week. As most polls show him trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, part of his campaign’s strategy has been to engage Latino voters – which make up nearly a quarter of eligible voters in the state. Tony Paniagua spoke to Latino supporters about their decision to re-elect Trump. He also heard from Tucson Mayor Regina Romero, who is encouraging the same voting bloc to back Biden. OSIRIS-REx TAG: NASA made history this week when the unmanned spacecraft OSIRIS-REx collected an asteroid sample in a years-long mission that is being led by researchers at the University of Arizona. Christopher Conover spoke to principal investigator Dante Lauretta about the historic milestone and the mission’s next steps. CENSUS 2020: With the conclusion of the 2020 Census, Arizona 360 hears from Alec Thomson, executive director of the Arizona Complete Count Committee. Thomson discusses the state’s efforts to encourage participation, whether they succeeded and what the results will mean for Arizonans in the coming decade. FOOD SCARCITY: Southern Arizona Community Foodbank CEO Michael McDonald discusses what the need for services has been like over the last several months during the pandemic. Arizona 360 visited the food bank in March as it transitioned to drive-thru service and put a call out for more volunteers. EDIBLE INSECTS: Tony Paniagua reports on how researchers at the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences currently devising solutions to a problem facing Earth’s food supplies in 30 years when the population is expected to balloon to 10 billion and traditional sources of protein will be scarce.
