Truthfully, I don’t think there will be much if any hanky-panky.
Giffords old district was quite conservative, and she was able to win the election there by getting a lot of outside money from Tucson liberals who were just outside the district. In fact, she was shot while campaigning for money outside her district.
However, this worked because nobody was giving much money to the Republican candidates there. This time is different.
To start with, the district has been changed to incorporate even more conservatives. The out of state money going to both sides is much greater than it was before.
Very little of the Republican money is going directly to the Republican candidate. Instead it is working to get him elected at a different level, where truthfully it is probably more effective.
It will be interesting to see what happens, but the end result will be moot all too soon.
Looks like the Dem will take this in a walk based upon other reports. Hope not.
The district is unchanged for this election. Giffords puppet will get some sympathy vote. If folks aren’t paying close attention, then they may believe the media coverage that Jesse Kelly kicks old people for fun.
The election in November MAY be different. I’m pulling for Jesse Kelly, but I find it hard to be optimistic.
No way this district is “quite conservative.” It hasn't changed yet. The University of Arizona and moonbat Tucson is right in the middle of it. They are so stupid here they don't light the city streets because of an observatory. This district since 1982 has been represented by Jim McNulty, a moonbat Democrat, Jim Kolbe, a gay Rino, Giffords, and now this new idiot.
