Kozachik To Potential Challengers: "Bring It On If You Want To"

Posted By on Thu, Mar 21, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik drew a big crowd to his reelection kickoff party at Borderlands Brewing yesterday.

Kozachik promised a fierce campaign against any challengers as he talked about the various endorsements he's picked up so far:


My purpose in coming out really hard and really aggressively is to say: Bring it on if you want to. It's going to be a waste of your time and a waste of your money. We've got some good things going and we're not going to let up.

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild may have had the quote of the night as he discussed Kozachik's switch from a Republican to a Democrat earlier this year:

I do want to address this little D and R thing. I know this from my own experience, and I don't want anyone to take this the wrong way … but I think we all know, when someone comes out in your family, the family already knows. And in this case, we knew.
