GOP-Democratic join events in Sonoita buck hyper-partisan trend | The Weekly Bulletin

by AZPSC News Feed
On Oct. 19, members of the Southern Arizona Republican Club gathered for their monthly meeting at the Sonoita-Elgin Fire District station. Those in the crowd of more than 40 people weren’t all Republicans, however. A number of Democrats were also on hand, and they weren’t there to protest, either. In fact, the meeting, which featured a talk on the art of diplomatic translation by University of Arizona Professor and part-time Sonoita resident Larry Fisher, was co-sponsored by the Arizona Borderlands Democrats, whose members mostly live in the Sonoita, Elgin and Patagonia region. The joint meetings, which began in June, don’t […]

Could This Single Mom in Arizona Become Bernie Sanders 2.0? | Politics & Power

by AZPSC News Feed
Talia Fuentes has her politics face on. She moves through various personas during our conversation — biologist to tech entrepreneur to work-from-home single mom — but it’s the candidate for U.S. Congress who greets me first, delivering polished talking points about her campaign goals. Still, it’s hard not to notice the tattoos peeking out from underneath her blazer, souvenirs from when she managed a tattoo studio, one of many jobs over her whirlwind career. Today, however, Fuentes, 32, is considered an up-and-comer in the Arizona Democratic Party as she seeks the nomination for the state’s solidly blue 9th Congressional District. […]

Why talking heads wrong about Sen. Flake | Viewpoints

by AZPSC News Feed
It’s amusing to see commentators and so-called political analysts predicting that Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, retiring hurts the Republicans. Before the senator decided not to seek a second term, the common analysis was: Republicans are likely to lose if he runs. Yet, Flake deciding regretfully to leave complete with a lecture from the Senate floor rather astonishingly yields the same analytical electoral conclusion: a bad development for Republicans. In actuality, Flake deciding to retire helps his party. Republican chances of holding the Arizona Senate seat, in what is still at least a nominally Republican state, are better than the day […]
