2010-06-16 CD8: Graf Endorses Jesse Kelly (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2010/06/15/cd8-graf-endorses-jesse-kelly

        

Republican Jesse Kelly, one of five Republicans running for the chance to take on Democratic incumbent Gabrielle Giffords in CD8, has won the endorsement of former state lawmaker Randy Graf.


“I think Jesse is the most conservative and the best candidate to run against Giffords in the general election,” says Graf.


It was Graf who turned CD8 upside down by first challenging Republican Jim Kolbe in 2004. While Kolbe knocked back Graf’s challenge that year, he retired in 2006 rather than seeking a 12th term in Congress. Graf won the GOP primary that year, but lost the seat to Giffords in the general election, capturing just 42 percent of the vote.


Graf may have lost the general election, but he’s set the tone for this year’s crop o ...read more...

Democrat John Dougherty, who is running against three other Democrats for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Republican John McCain, launches a Huffington Post blog:


Why would an investigative journalist who made a decent living uncovering one scandal after another decide to enter the seamy world of politics?


The answer is simple: I'm fed up with money-driven politics that brought us to the brink of financial collapse, left the Gulf of Mexico drenched in oil, has given us wars without end, and a 19th Century fossil-fuel-based economy that could reduce America to a second-rate power in our lifetimes.

Nate Silver examines today's NPR poll of swing seats such as Arizona's Congressional District 8:


Broadly speaking, this poll is consistent with the impression I have had of the House picture for almost a year now, which is that the over/under on the number of net Democratic losses is about 40 seats (i.e. they have about even odds of losing the House), with a 90 percent confidence interval of about +/- 20 seats. I also suspect that the race characterizations issued by Cook, etc., are about half a grade too optimistic for Democrats on average, e.g., a "toss-up" seat should be thought of as somewhere between toss-up and lean Republica ...read more...

Phoenix New Times' Paul Rubin looks into the shooting of Pinal County Sheriff's Deputy Louie Puroll:


The DPS investigation raises more questions than it  answers about a scenario that instantly escalated the already tense situation in Arizona stemming from contentious Senate Bill 1070 and the shocking March 27 murder of border rancher Rob Krentz.


Does the DPS scene analysis accuse or even suggest that Deputy Puroll (in the June 5 photo) staged the episode and injured himself slightly somehow for unspecified motives?


Or does it suggest that the deputy may have engaged in a nefarious scheme of his own device—say a shakedown ...read more...

2010-06-16 Sen. Aboud Helps Independent Rival Reach Ballot (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2010/06/15/sen-aboud-helps-independent-rival-reach-ballot

        

Green-turned-independent Dave Ewoldt has beaten Democrat-turned-independent Ted Downing’s effort to get him tossed off the November ballot.


Both men are running without party affiliation against Democrat state Sen. Paula Aboud in midtown Tucson’s Legislative District 26.


And Downing, who represented LD28 as a Democrat in the House of Representatives for two terms before losing a primary race against Aboud for the Senate seat in 2006, has a big gripe: Aboud and her companion, Terri Berg, helped Ewoldt make the ballot by passing his petitions.


Ewoldt says that Aboud and Berg did offer to carry some petitions for him because they’d been talking throughout the spring about the burdensome requirement that he had to collect 655 signatures to mak ...read more...
