We'd like to give a big thanks to the presidential candidates who came by our first Project White House Beer Summit yesterday, including Republicans Sarah Gonzales, Charles Skelley, Peter "Simon" Bollander, Al Perry, Donald Benjamin and Kip Dean and Green Michael Oatman. Despite their rivalries in seeking to win Arizona's Feb. 28 presidential primary, all of the candidates showed tremendous civility and respect toward one another and we hope to do another beer summit soon.

Another big thanks is due to our gracious host, Borderlands Brewing Co., and to the two food trucks that came by. MaFooCo served up some outstanding Korean tacos and Animal Farm's burger is as good as it gets, from the light and yummy bun to the fresh beef patty. We're eager to try more of their offerings.

We'll have a full report on the latest from Project White House in next week's print edition, but in the meantime, enjoy some photos from TW intern Zachary Vito below the cut.
