I’m not going to endorse or prognosticate about tomorrow. You may have noticed that I don’t say much about the Democratic primary races in Arizona. I definitely have my favorites but I’ve rarely felt a compelling reason to weigh in on a primary candidate in my blog posts because, for the most part, I’m pleased with our slate of candidates. Not a nutjob or cretin in the bunch*, which is not something our GOP counterparts can claim.
To be sure, there’s been mud slung and some of our candidates have over-promised and exaggerated their own qualifications and their opponents’ shortcomings, which is to be expected in elections. But I’ll happily support every statewide and local candidate who emerges in tomorrow’s election for the general race. (Of course, I live in a lege district with no contested Democratic primaries so that’s easy for me to say.)
*I know. Some of y’all are really committed to a particular primary candidate and are convinced that his/her opponent is a putrescent scalawag of the worst order. But starting Wednesday we gotta put it behind us to face a tough, but not insurmountable, General Election season.
(P.S.: Good luck tomorrow, Katie!)
