Waiting for Grijalva: Dems Go Over Results and Listen to Hits From 1970s

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 at 9:06 PM

While hits from the 1970s played in the background at El Casino Ballroom, Pima County Democratic Party Chair Jeff Rogers took turns at the podium announcing different results projects on a ballroom wall from the Arizona Secretary of State website.

U.S. Congressman Raul Grijalva's 66 percent lead over Yuma Democrat Amanda Aguirre received the most cheers this evening, while U.S. Congressman Ron Barber's lead over Matt Heinz by 83 percent received a quiet round of cheers.

No announcement on the CD1 race between Democrats Ann Kirkpatrick and Wenona Benally Baldenegro—but Kirkpatrick is ahead 67 percent with Baldenegro at 32 percent. No word yet of an earlier rumor of an independent run by Baldenegro for the general election.

The room is waiting for the man of the hour, making his way back from Yuma. It's the real victory of the night.
