Upcoming Legislative Debates

Posted By on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 at 10:25 AM

If you liked the bickering you saw in the Clean Elections Governor's debate, you'll love southern Arizona's legislative debates.

We posted the schedule for you after the jump, but first a little bickering of our own...

Senator Al Melvin and Cheryl Cage, his Democratic challenger in LD26, repeatedly promised to attend a Clean Elections debate before the general election. (Liars liars, pants on fires!). Clean Elections doesn't host debates for traditionally funded candidates, which they both are, and we have a sneaking suspicion they know that rule.

We also won't get a Clean Elections debate in that exciting LD26 House race—where Democratic Rep. Nancy Young Wright will fight to keep her seat in a race against GOP candidates Vic Williams and Terri Proud in the Republican-leaning district—but those candidates didn't go out of their way to make us any false promises.

We'll let you know about other events coming up in that hotly contested district, which spans the east side of I-10 through Oro Valley, but in the meantime, watch for these debates coming up in September.

If you don't know your legislative district, look at your voter card or enter your address at the bottom left of this site and find out.
