Re: “Kirkpatrick Wins EMILY's List Nod in Race Against U.S. Rep. McSally

"the D.C. establishment is coming together to back Kirkpatrick" Wonderful. And we all know the backing of establishment Democrats means everything. You can't make this stuff up. It's sad that the Democrats have learned nothing from 2016 or from the preceding eight years when they lost 1,000 seats at all levels of government nationwide. Ann Kirkpatrick's website is a joke - no positions, a short video with a lot of empty platitudes. People are tired of 'lesser of two evils' choices in elections. As I said when she ran against McCain, her role in the insidious Oak Flat land swap disqualified her for me. Unless the Democrats nominate a Progressive - Matiella and Wheeler have both posted some Progressive policy positions on their websites - we are likely to see a second term for McSally.

Re: “Raising the CD2 Ante: Challenger Kirkpatrick Raises $350,000 in Third Quarter

If Kirkpatrick is the nominee McSally gets re-elected. Sorry, but Oak Flat should DQ Kirkpatrick and the endorsement of blue-dogs Barber and Giffords is a turnoff. That and the carpetbagger ads will write themselves. Mary Matiella has a lot of Progressive positions on her website, Medicare for All, etc., but the lack of anything re: endless wars (she's retired Asst. Secretary of the Army) is a little troubling. Will be interesting to see if the Democrats learned anything from 2016.

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

She'll never do a town hall in Tucson because she knows her voting record does not represent the views of the majority of people here. Trump lost Pima County by 57,000 votes yet McSally's voting record is 100% support for every Trump position.


Yes, she's a political coward. She is just another hack politician who votes with her party and not for her constituents.

Re: “The Skinny

How is Babeu a candidate for anything? He's a first-class creep.

Re: “McCain vs. Kirkpatrick: It's On Like Donkey Kong!

Vote for the tired, war monger Republican who never met a Sunday morning talk show he didn't like or vote for the Democrat who was part of the insidious collaboration with the same tired Republican - along with Jeff Flake - that slipped the Oak Flat land swap into a defense spending bill? Great choice! Another race I'll be leaving blank.

Re: “Congress: Heinz Up Over Steele in CD2 Dems, Babeu Up Over Field in CD1 GOP Primary

Heinz has the money to run a few cheesy TV commercials that sway the low info types and he wins. Yawn.

I received a call from a pollster several weeks ago, obviously from either the state or county Democratic party. You could tell by how the questions and follow-ups were phrased that their choice was Heinz. I told them I couldn't vote for him because his website had zero information as to what his position was on any issue. Posting a bunch of links to "McSally is bad" editorials is not a policy position. Good luck with that in the general election, I'll be leaving this race blank.

Re: “The Skinny

"371 voters cast ballots at the wrong polling place"

How does someone cast a ballot at the wrong polling place? Don't poll workers verify that each voter is at the correct polling place before giving them a ballot?

"318 voters were not properly registered to vote"

What does "not properly registered" even mean? If you're registered you get a ballot, if you're not, you don't. Right? How does someone "not properly registered" even get a ballot?

Now that Barber appears done, I wonder if he regrets his vote for the farm bill that cut $8.7 billion from food stamps. The republic party filled my mailbox with giant postcards of scruffy children attacking Barber for that vote. Anyone who pays attention knows it's laughable to think the republic party is pro food stamps. But the low-info types probably took that message away from those mailers. And it was easy to verify that Barber did cast that vote. This race should send a message to every Blue Dog Dem out there - you will get attacked by the other side when you vote with them.

Anyway, good luck to you, Botox McSally. It looks like you won one for the Kochs.
