Posted By on Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 9:45 AM

On AZ Illustrated Politics last night: Host Jim Nintzel, Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Lea Marquez-Peterson, former state lawmaker Jonathan Paton and former Pima County Democratic Party chairman Jeff Rogers discussed whether the Boston Marathon bombing would disrupt immigration reform; how the fallout from the Senate's failure to expand background checks on gun sales would affect Sen. Jeff Flake and background-check advocate Gabby Giffords; what comes next in the battle between Gov. Jan Brewer and GOP state lawmakers over the proposed Medicaid expansion; and how the 2014 governor's race was shaping up with the entrance this week of Democrat Fred DuVal and Republicans Al Melvin and Andrew Thomas.
