As an Independent registered woman, several of us here in Arizona are trying to moderate our State as we continue to fight Tea Party extremism.  Requesting the Democratic ballot and supporting good Democratic politicians is the only way we can do so.  We also applaud women candidates who have saved breast cancer patient lives and helped domestic violence women victims.  Latina Demcoratic Congressional Candidate -- Amanda Aguirre has a strong record of helping breast cancer patients and domestic violence victims.

Due to the anti-Latino sentiment in the State of Arizona, Latino independents, Latino Republicans are more inclined to vote for President Obama this year since Mitt Romney has received advise from Kris Kobach (the legal architect behind many anti- DREAM Act and anti-immigrant laws).

National Tequila Party Endorses Sen. Aguirre for Congress

Phoenix, AZ—The female-led, non-partisan Tequila Party is endorsing Senator Amanda Aguirre (D-AZ) in District 3’s contested primary race against incumbent Raul Grijalva.  The National Tequila Party Movement is now rallying the Latino community to get out and vote for Sen. Aguirre on August 28th.

Brandon L. Maxwell commented, “As the fastest growing demographic in this country, we believe it is imperative that Latinos understand the power they wield at the ballot box.  Together we can make a difference!”

Foundress and Co-President, DeeDee Garcia Blase is encouraging all Independents and women voters to consider Amanda Aguirre according to a recent article in the Tucson Citizen (July 28, 2012):

“I discovered what an amazing woman she is being the Arizona Senator who was instrumental in helping women with breast cancer get screening since 1994.  She also began a café to help domestic violence women victims empower themselves with job skills in an effort to get off welfare programs… Every Arizona independent registered voter—(particularly women) ought to look at [Aguirre’s] biography.”

If Aguirre wins, she would be the first Latina Congresswoman elected from Arizona, a state where more women than men vote.  Isn’t it about time we have a Representative in Congress that actually represents us?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Because Tequila is stronger than Tea. The Tequila Party is a Latina-led counter movement to the Tea Party extremists.

  •  why primary a good progressive? nm (0+ / 0-)

      Putting up a credible primary challenge to a solid progressive voice like Raul Grijalva makes no sense. You don't primary someone just because you CAN. He's the co-chair of what Allen West would refer to as the "Communist Caucus" in Congress. He endangered his own re-election in 2010 to stand up against his state's idiocy.

      That's the kind of guy I want representing my progressive ideals in Congress.
