Project White House: Readers' Endorsement Early Returns

Posted By on Sun, Jan 27, 2008 at 10:15 AM

A Project White House update: You’re making your voice heard! Votes are pouring in from across the nation in the battle for the Tucson Weekly Readers’ Presidential Endorsement over at Project White House Central Polling Headquarters.

In the Republican race, Frank McEnulty has brought out the troops to take almost 75 percent of the vote, with Sean “CF” Murphy trailing in second place with about 18 percent. The early voters have not been won over Charles Skelley’s economic campaign, with Skelley in single digits. Can the Skelley campaign change its message in some way to capture the hearts and minds of the late voters?

Meanwhile, in the Democratic contest, sleeping giant Leland Montell has captured nearly half the vote. In second place: Sandy Whitehouse, with about 30 percent. Despite her aggressive campaign and a solid appearance in the Tucson Weekly/Access Tucson/Project White House Dark Horse Presidential Candidate Debate 08 earlier this week, Libby “Doctress Neutopia” Hubbard trails with just 8 percent of the vote.

Saguaro Supper Club Debuts in Tucson

Posted By on Thu, Jan 24, 2008 at 9:12 AM

I ran out of space in my Noshing Around column but felt this was perhaps worth a mention:

Benny Hill (he says it's his real name) sent this to me verbatim:

"We're an eclectic mix of transplants and natives who reside in Southern Arizona who like to randomly get together and eat at mostly cheap restaurants in and around the nooks and crannies of the Old Pueblo. Our ideal restaurant is one that appeals to some or all of the senses in some kind of phat way. I do concede that we're a copycat of the Silverlake Dinner Club which over the course of the past ten years has become quite the sub rosa group in Los Angeles."

The SSG's first meeting will be Saturday, Jan. 26, at El Minuto Cafe.

Please arrive between 4:30-5 p.m. Contact to inquire about the specifics.
