Since it's official John Huppenthal is going to be the Republican challenger for Superintendent of Public Instruction, I thought it would be good to remind everyone of last year's court hearing when the Hup defended taking on an old lady over a political sign. Somehow I don't see Democrat Penny Kotterman doing this, even if the old lady turned out to be a Republican-public education hater.

From a story in The Arizona Republic here:

"I started to pull out and all of a sudden the door opened and it scared the heck out of me. This lady was coming into my car, and I thought, 'I'm being hijacked by an older woman,' " he said.

Tonight's latest election numbers from the Secretary of State's office:

DUGAN, MARGARET (REP) 27.79% 123,912 votes
HUPPENTHAL, JOHN (REP) 58.31% 260,035 votes
PRICE, BETH (REP) 13.50% 60,209 votes

KOTTERMAN, PENNY (DEM) 65.46% 164,139 votes
WILLIAMS, JASON (DEM) 33.59% 84,223 votes

The attorney general race is close between Vulcan, er, Republicans Tom Horne and Andrew Thomas:

HORNE, TOM (REP) 49.78% 236,454 votes
THOMAS, ANDREW P. (REP) 49.69% 236,021 votes

LUJAN, DAVID (DEM) 40.42% 102,405 votes
RABAGO, VINCE (DEM) 17.67% 44,779 votes
ROTELLINI, FELECIA (DEM) 40.92% 103,684 votes
