Get a Look at Arizona’s Future Governor

The East Valley Partnership recently held a forum for the candidates from both parties for Arizona's Governorship in 2022. Of those aspiring to the Republican nomination, Matt Salmon, Steve Gaynor, Kimberly Yee, and Karrin Taylor Robson were in attendance. Kari Lake claimed a scheduling conflict and did not appear. Unfortunate, as I was keen to see her fatuously call for Hobbs' arrest to her face. All of the announced candidates for the Democratic nomination were present, including Katie Hobbs, Aaron Lieberman, and Marco Lopez, Jr. I have to admit that there were very few surprises in the presentations and answers [...]

"We are going to be coming out with a report in the next couple of weeks that really encapsulates all of that. Look, no matter what they come up with, this isn't a real audit [...]

Are Ducey and Republicans Headed for the Woodshed in November?

Gov. Ducey had better start paying attention because by all indications a train wreck is coming for him and elected Republicans in November. Since being elected he seems to have been able to fool all the voters some of the time, but because of his record you cannot fool all the voters all the time. If predictions hold true that Mark Kelly will unseat Martha McSally, Arizona will have two Democratic Senators both on Ducey’s watch and both seats lost by Ducey’s handpicked candidate Martha McSally. It seems when Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different [...]
