Yes Devils Advocate, apparently Grijalva's camp did agree to move the time and they still backed out. I agree its not that big of a deal, timing conflicts happen. I do find it ironic that her camp made a publicity stunt out of pressing for a debate and then they are the ones that didn't show, but I guess as long as they got the press for 'demanding' a debate thats all that matters...
A vote for Ruth is a vote to destroy Social, Security and give the corporations more power and more money. She has already sold her positions for campaign $$$. Sure she would be more than willing to do it as a representative.
Still learning how to work this post thing - sorry for duplicates.
Yeah, not sure why she would back out. She does a good job of seeming moderate in the debates but I have been reading about pledges and her positions on paper and its much diferent than what she says. I am looking into Keane now. Thanks for posting.
Yeah not sure why shes backing out now, she does a good job appearing moderate on the issues in the debates. I am just now starting to read that she has signed pledges and is actually much more extreme than I thought. Doing more research on Keane positions now. Thanks for posting.
Grijalva had the guts to stand up to a discriminatory and unconstitutional law; this is what I expect from my Congressman. Not some one that would roll over and let our state be destroyed by a law that clearly creates a division among our people. We need to work together to overcome and prosper - not be torn apart by ill-conceived laws. STOP THE HATE - - KEEP GRIJALVA!!!!!!
And dont forget what starts Boycotts, they are a call to action to combat injustices. Arizona governor Evan Mecham rescinds MLK Day as his first act in office, setting off a boycott of the state. The NFL moves the 1993 Super Bowl site from Phoenix, Ariz., to Pasadena, Calif., because of the MLK Day boycott. Arizona citizens vote to enact MLK Day. The Super Bowl is held in Tempe, Ariz. in 1996.
Grijalva has clearly demonstrated that protecting the people of his state means far more than politics we should all fight to keep him protecting us!!!! He has fought to bring stimulus money to our state - the repubs would have voted against bringing BILLIONS to AZ as well as privatizing Social Security - all our retirments would be lost in Wall Street! Is this the leadership we want? Do we really want to go back down this road - the Bush era made our national and local economy crumble! We must not go back.
