January 17th, 2016 from Zona Politics with Jim Nintzel on Vimeo.

On this week's episode of Zona Politics: Democratic congressional candidate Tom O'Halleran, who hopes to win the open seat that U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick is giving up to challenge Sen. John McCain, visits the set. The former state lawmaker talks about why he jumped from the Republican Party to the Democratic Party, what he thinks of President Barack Obama's executive action on guns, and his thoughts on immigration. 

Then former state lawmaker Jonathan Paton and former Pima County Democratic Party chairman Don Jorgensen unpack Gov. Doug Ducey's State of the State; debate whether the state should be investing more in programs to help at-risk kids; assess Ducey's threat to withhold state-shared revenues from cities and towns that raise the minimum wage or otherwise require businesses to offer benefits to employees; and talk about whether the city of Tucson will move forward with plans to require businesses to offer sick leave to workers.
