Jeff Flake and background-check advocate Gabby Giffords; what comes next in the battle between Gov. Jan Brewer and GOP state lawmakers over the proposed Medicaid expansion; and how the 2014 governor's race was shaping up with the entrance this week of Democrat Fred DuVal and Republicans Al Melvin and Andrew Thomas.
