AZ Republic’s historic endorsement of Clinton is great. Hope they build upon it.

@azcentral WORST ENDORSEMENT EVER we will never buy nor read ur awful paper.Crooked AZ Republic & Crooked @HillaryClinton deserve each other — David and Michelle (@David_M_K) September 28, 2016 Some people are not taking the endorsement well. I was truly expecting the Arizona Republic to do their usual thing on a Presidential endorsement, where they […]

Meet the highly shady out-of-state characters influencing, and bankrolling, Top Two Primary in AZ

John Arnold and Jackie Salit It’s no secret that “centrist” business leaders in the Central Phoenix corridor and their friends at the Arizona Republic are strongly backing the Top Two Primary initiative, which now has ballot language and is getting signatures gathered for it. Even political reporter Mary Jo Pitzl couldn’t help but make her […]
