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.
That’s just it. Lefty Tucson is right in the middle of it, but not in it, yet can pour so much money into a campaign that they can dominate the local politics. The district itself is fairly conservative, but is hopelessly “out-monied” by Tucson.
The map of Tucson congressional districts themselves shows the gray area controlled by the ultra-leftist Rep. Grijalva, who is thought to be the most extreme leftist in the entire House, just adjacent to district 8.
