    but I hope you will be voting for her in November, when she faces a potentially close re-election.  You might not like her votes, but she's clearly building a moderate profile that can get elected statewide in Arizona.  A Democrat winning statewide again in this frustratingly Republican state would be something.

      If by 'building a moderate profile' you mean 'betraying her Democratic supporters by voting for every crackpot Republican bill set before her, including every bill designed to weaken and delay the ACA' - you'd be completely right. She's one of the very worst Blue Dog Democrats in Congress, and just because she has a 'D' in front of her name doesn't mean she's worth my support.

      I have to vote according to her record, not in hope of some nebulous future career that may never happen.
