Democrats Speak!

Posted By on Tue, Nov 3, 2009 at 10:23 PM

We've managed to catch up with the three Democrats on the ballot tonight.

Nina Trasoff, who has the closest race against Republican Steve Kozachik, just told us:

"I hope to return to office," Trasoff said. "I'm proud of the work I've done and hope to continue it. It's up to the people."

Karin Uhlich was feeling more upbeat about her race against Republican Ben Buehler-Garcia.

"It's looking good for us," Uhlich said. "Clearly, there's a lot of anxiety because of the economic downturn. We have to pull together right now."

Richard Fimbres was downright upbeat about his wide margin over Republican Shaun McClusky.

"Tucson sent a good message tonight that experience and knowledge still mean something," said Fimbres, who added that the city's precarious financial situation, with an estimated budget shortfall of more than $40 million next year, was a looming challenge.
