Welcome, Media: McSheraton Republican Fiesta 2014

Posted By on Tue, Nov 4, 2014 at 6:52 PM

Hey-ho election observers, hopefully by now you've voted, with dinner in your bellies, ready to take in the election results and fun times that come with celebrating those results. Per usual, I'm at the GOP fiesta at the Sheraton. So far TV crews have some nice comfy places to stay, but beware the woman with the walkie-talkie ...

Unlike past elections, while Col. Martha McSally changed her mind on corralling the press, just asking for a small table and some chairs for print folks to sit and work with a group of UA journalism students ... well, damn, this year, it could be a problem. We're still working out our issues and I'm enjoying our flirtatious glances. I see you Sheraton lady. You're doing a good job. Don't forget to ask the campaign about that table.

But we're here, and so far the band is just setting up. They look young, which is encouraging, as the Pima County Republican Party continues to shed it's Mamie and Ike persona. Good job, guys. No names as of yet, not even a Tucson Unified School District governing board member spotted two years ago (Well, he's not running this year folks, but hell, the night is young).

So, wish us luck and stayed tuned, and let's have some fun.
