President Obama and Rep. Patterson in Mesa AZ, Feb 09.
UPDATE, 11PM: Text of President Obama's inspiring speech at ASU. It was a fun honor to be there.
TEMPE -- I will proudly help welcome President Barack Obama back to Arizona this evening at ASU.
Mr. President, please visit Tucson and Pima County next time you come to the Grand Canyon State. We have over 1M people and you actually won there. No doubt Maricopa County needs attention, but Tucson is the political and Democratic heart of Arizona, an important and changing big western state.
