My Democratic district meeting was packed!

There are easily 3X as many people here as at a usual meeting. #AZLD28Dems pic.twitter.com/iOvArg3WmC — 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 […]

Per the Capitol Times: Harris said he believes Muslims’ loyalty to the U.S. is questionable because their ultimate […]
