AZ has already weighed in on McSally. The GOP figures, no, it's the voters who are wrong.

Not enough people starved themselves so they could donate their money to the campaigns.  You must suffer for  your victory.

McSally, cannabis legalization, Hair Dipshiat are all on the ballot. It's the middle one that will resonate with the voters here. Now if they had something about universal health care, that would bring out the voters, too, but noooooo, neither party wants that.
 
2020-08-27 11:25:18 AM  
PleasepleasepleasepleasePLEASE.

I cannot STAND McSally

"I have a brilliant idea. Let's fill McCain's seat with the candidate who lost the last Senate election. That will really stick it to those libs. What could go wrong?"

Spoiler alert:

They didn't.

Dems will lose all close states because five percent will mess up the mail in ballot process and hand trump a landslide as a result.

/book it.
// please please please go vote in person if you can.  don't mail in just to mail in because it will "bother" trump.
/// its EXACTLY what he wants you to do

Wonderful, the Democrats will rise to power to get stuck with the job of cleaning up the festering mess left by the GOP, and the GOP will get their genitals in a twist because that festering mess isn't getting cleaned up fast enough, and John Q. Goldfishbrain will fall for it and vote the GOP back in to power dump a fresh festering mess all over the new carpet.

Reliably red Arizonians are dying at a record rate. It's always just been a matter of time, and arguably Trump has accelerated the changeover.

"Trump and McSally's sagging poll numbers now threaten to flip both chambers of the state legislature to Democrats"


That's some insane clickbait bullshiat right there. You mean the state that didn't even have MLK day as a holiday until it started being boycotted nationally is going to flip blue? Thanks for the laugh Salon.

The real question is "How many times does Martha McSally need to lose before YOU get it?" This is the modern-day GOP, they don't give a shiat what the voters want. They only care about what their puppet masters want, and if that's contrary to what the voters want, then too damn bad.

My favorite is when libertarians vote for the GOP. They aren't even remotely close, ideologically.

Yeah, you're a clever one.

It's not about him.  I've already lost two family members (who had remained socially distant from each other) to COVID, but I still have others to protect.

I'll vote the day I get my ballot, but I'll vote absentee, and it has nothing to do with bothering Trump.

Yes, it's Trump and McSally that the populace are sick of. Not the whole of GOP policies that Trump is simply enacting and that McSally would fast-track.

This is the approved 2020 Democratic Party platform, which Biden has pledged to support.

Universal health care is on page 28.

Difficulty: The Senate is a thing that stops exciting things from happening.

New Arizonan here (moved from Vermont to Flagstaff). I delight in the fact that my blue vote will cancel out one retiree's red vote from Phoenix. There's a lot of momentum for Mark Kelly which is exciting too!

It absolutely amazes me that when I see the ads for McSally or Trump during hulu breaks, that they are absolutely, 100% lies. They don't even try to make them somewhat believable or based on "partial-truths", or even subtle for that matter. Flat out lies....yet people will eat it up. Blows my mind.

Unless of course the Democrats finally learn to do something that they have sucked ass at for so long: controlling the narrative.

When dogs come barking at you, you bark louder. Dems keep their mouths shut, hoping the passers-by notice the barking dogs. What they notice is the person cowering at the barking dogs.

Born and raised in Phoenix.  Moved almost six years ago.  Arizona is a special brand of stupid.

I miss my favorite restaurants from Phoenix!!!

Why is everyone acting as though McSally's appointment to the Senate was some kind of affront to the voting public in the state? She came in second place in the last election. Surely that means that she has a decent enough following.

So you admit your only reason for voting is stigginit.

That's a bold strategy, Cotton.

Hispanics are a super diverse group.  If Republicans can appeal to the more conservative members of that group, they have a chance to keep AZ.

That would mean reaching out to non- white people. I don't think the GOP can do that.
