Democrat Randy Parraz Jumps Into Arizona Senate Race

Posted By on Mon, Apr 26, 2010 at 1:42 PM

Politico reports that Democrat Rodney Glassman may have company in the primary for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Republican John McCain:

An Arizona civil rights advocate jumped into the state's Senate race Monday, pointing to the strict anti-illegal immigration law just signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer as a central theme of his campaign.

Randy Parraz joins a Democratic primary field that includes just one other candidate, businessman and Tucson City Councilman Rodney Glassman. And Christina Martinez, a spokeswoman for Parraz, said the new immigration law was a major factor driving his decision to run.

"This was the straw that broke the camel's back," she said. "For many of us, our spirit has become broken. People don't have the will to take the lead and challenge these folks, so we're relying on Randy to do it."
