wow! The Tucson Weekly ought to think about endorsing a Democrat or two. I think their choices are extremely biased.
The problem is that during the primary the Dems got involved to make sure Jesse kelly was elected. They new they could beat him whereas the other two candidates would have actually caused a huge problem for Giffords. Republicans fell for it and ended up with the worst possible candidate coming out of the primary. And we as Republicans do it every election cycle. Until we start putting up candidates who actual have common sense and ideas with a plan behind it, people like Giffords will keep getting elected. Who thought it was a good idea to elect a primary candidate who dropped out of college, served 4 years in the military, then went to work for his daddy and isn't even out of his 20's yet?! Come on people!
I happen to be a part of the Miller campaign who you say is so "chummy" with the Paton campaign. I can tell you that what you see is mutual respect from the two campaigns. I have zero respect for the Kelly camp and have seen way to many things behind the public persona from Kelly that contradicts what he portrays to voters. I won't speak for the others from our camp but I can say this is the first time I have ever been involved in politics and what I have seen out of Kelly is exactly what people are so angry at from our government. If for some crazy reason Kelly should win the primary, Giffords would be in office another term. The reason you see so much against Kelly is because people are sick of the fake performance he gives to voters while showing everyone else his real attitude, which is cocky and unethical. No there is no "hopping into bed" Linda. Just a mutual concern for our district's political future should Kelly win. We would all suffer more than we have with Gabby.
Note: Less than half the attendees actually voted. And that half is mostly made up of staff and supporters who came specifically to vote for their candidate. The majority left undecided.
