Homeland chief Janet Napolitano predicts Arizona turns blue

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that the rising immigrant population in Arizona will benefit the Democratic Party.

According to the Washington Times, the former Arizona governor predicted the state turning blue in future elections.

At a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor she said:

"I think it will be more purple over time, but ultimately blue. It'll happen, I think. The fact that I could win three straight elections there, I think is indicative that Democrats can win and do win in Arizona."

Napolitano said this change will be because of the influx of immigrants into the state.

Arizona has voted for a Republican presidential candidate in every election since 1976, with the exception of 1996.

State conservatives have had a 5 percentage majority over the Democratic Party for years, but now various polling agencies show statistics do indicate a population shift.
