I'm pretty excited to find out President Bill Clinton will be in Tempe, AZ next week to stand with Dr. Richard Carmona.
I am going to try to get my dad to the event. He is a right-leaning independent who has been warming up to Dr. Carmona. Like Dr. Carmona, my dad is a Vietnam vet who enlisted after dropping out of high school. My dad put in 20 years and retired as a Chief Boatswain's Mate around the time I was born. Since then, he has seen his retirement benefits repeatedly sacked and downgraded. He has always believed that the Republicans are the ones looking out for veterans, but is now starting to realize that is not true. I think seeing Dr. Carmona may be the push he needs to finally vote for some Democratic candidates.
Dr. Carmona was leading Rep. Flake in the most recent PPP poll. He has a real shot at picking up Sen. Kyl's seat, which is why we are now seeing the SuperPACs coming into the state and blanketing the airwaves with lies and half-truths.
I hope President Clinton can give Dr. Carmona a big boost in fundraising.
If you want to help us get Dr. Carmona into the senate, donate here.
Apparently, they haven't released tickets for the event, yet. Hopefully I can manage to get a couple when they do.
