Arizona District 7 Upset – Grijalva May Lose to McClung

AZ-7 has been thought safe from the left side of the isle for quite some time.  Some of Obama’s “Change” may have come to town as the race is now considered to be a dead heat.  Conservatives, get ready – Ruth McClung needs your support, effort, money and most-of-all, your vote.

I ran across this post at theotherMcCain.com where Stacy McCain references Politico.com

Raul Grijalva getting beat by Ruth McClungAdd Rep. Raul Grijalva to the growing list of Democratic worries this election season.
Party operatives say there’s increasing concern that theArizona Democrat’s reelection bid could turn into a “sleeper” race for Republicans after Grijalva — responding to enactment of a tough new immigration law — called for an economic boycott of his own state amid a housing crisis and record unemployment.
Four Democratic sources from different parts of the country said that there is new attention to a race that was long considered in the bag.
And a recent poll, obtained by POLITICO, found thatGrijalva and Republican challenger Ruth McClung, a real-life rocket scientist, were in a dead heat, even though Washington prognosticators have declared the deep-blue seat safely Democratic.
As they work to buttress their majority against a coming Republican storm, Democrats can ill afford to spend time or resources defending incumbents in seats where they should have a clear advantage. But the Grijalva seat potentially being in play is a sign of the increasingly expanding Republican playing fieldfor the midterm elections. . . .

Just as Stacy points out, you absolutely must read the whole article.

Grijalvo has managed to actually turn against his own constituents, ignore the will of the people that voted for him and somehow stay in power?  Arizona .. this is your wake-up call.  If Stacy’s post wasn’t enough, I found this gem on AceofSpadesHQ.

While Ace focuses at first on looks, which I agree, Raul loses hands-down, the article continues to make some strong points.  He talks about a politco.com article where the Democrats are showing just how much of a bind McClung has put Grijalva into.
