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?
