  •  because that's all Maricopa county, here in Pima (8+ / 0-)

    we have basically full Dem control as well as one of the most beautiful area's in the country.....

    Unfortunately, Maricopa (Phx Metro) outnumbers the rest of the state combined so they win at the state level....

    Though we had Napolitano and had the President left us alone, brewer would never have existed as Gov.....

    •  Goddard was the worst candidate (3+ / 0-)

      I've seen.

      I seriously don't think you can win for Gov from Attorney General and not have investigated Arpaio.

      I just don't see that many pro-Dem, pro-Arpaio votes.

        and he ran a lousy campaign.  Randy Glassman was worse.

        Arizona. It's a dry hate.

          trouble, but Glassman was almost a fringe candidate.  Not in terms of his beliefs but in terms of 2 main features:

          1. resume padding-the people that were doing the same amount of resume selling of non-governmental work experience (maybe "padding" wasn't the right word) on the Republican side were all teabaggers
          1. organization-he supposedly treated his volunteers and employees terribly

          Yes, I probably engaged in hyperbole because Pederson and Glassman and the guy who ran against Jim Talent in MO in '94 were all probably worse.  However, Goddard gets additional levels of scorn from me.

          •  Yes Glassman was terrible (3+ / 0-)

            He was the only Dem candidate for whom I didn't vote, I voted Green Party for the Senate. But even then if I thought it was going to be close I'd have voted for Glassman because he would still be a big improvement over McCain. But I knew McCain would win by 25%+, so voted my conscience instead.

            I liked every other dem candidate better than him.  I really like Dougherty.

      Saddlebrooke (Pinal County).  Pima County and the metro area is not so blue anymore.  Too many gated white communities.
