Rumble in the RV Jungle: CD8 Debates Are Here!

Posted By on Tue, Mar 6, 2012 at 3:00 PM

UA communications prof Kate Kenksi talked with AZPM's Christopher Conover about the campaign dynamics of the compressed Congressional District 8 race, including the challenges facing Republicans who are trying to raise money to compete in an April 17 primary.

Those GOP candidates vying to complete Gabrielle Giffords' term—state Sen. Frank Antenori, 2010 GOP nominee Jesse Kelly, fighter pilot Martha McSally and sports broadcaster and businessman Dave Sitton—start going head to head with a forum tonight in the Catalina Room of the Voyager RV Park, 8701 S. Kolb Road.

The debates continue next week, starting with the BattleBrooke of SaddleBrooke up in state Sen. Al Melvin’s stronghold. Melvin supported Kelly in the 2010 election, but has switched allegiances to Antenori this year.

It's from 3:45 to 5:45 on Wednesday, March 14, at the Mountain View Club House, 38759 S. Mountain View Blvd.

The following night, the four candidates will meet again as the Sabino Teenage Republicans host a debate. The STAR-Spangled Tangle will feature moderators from the real alternative media in this town: The right-wing radio guys, including Jon Justice, Emil Franzi and Joe Higgins. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the debate is from 6:30 to 8:30 on Thursday, March 15, at Sabino High School, 5000 N. Bowes Road.
