My Democratic district meeting was packed!

There are easily 3X as many people here as at a usual meeting. #AZLD28Dems — Donna Gratehouse (@DonnaDiva) February 8, 2017 I was told the total number of attendees was about 160, so maybe not quite a triplefold increase but more than twice our usual number. I’ve lived in Arizona Legislative District 28 since […]

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.

Don’t mistake McCain getting revenge for moderation of the AZ GOP

When Eric Cantor lost his primary Tuesday night, and his position as House Majority Leader, a lot of liberals were exultant because why the hell shouldn’t we be? It was comical watching the whole thing unfold, since the Cantor camp had been assured of a 30 point victory by their own advisers. And Eric Cantor […]

A reminder that telling them to step it down a notch right now isn’t the same as telling them to moderate their position

Sen. John McCain is telling the AZ lege to slow their roll on HB2625, the No Slut Pills Unless Your Boss Approves Bill. The GOP-sponsored bill, which would put some women in the uncomfortable position of having to explain to their boss why they use birth control, already passed in the state House of Representatives […]
