The Arizona Republican Party has named a replacement for former Sen. Russell Pearce, who resigned his top party post following a backlash to his remarks advocating mandatory contraception or sterilization for people on Medicaid.
The first debate between gubernatorial candidates Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal was what I expected it to be. Their positions on education and jobs are quite well known. Both spoke well, dressed alike and were pleasant. It was what was to be expected.
Nearly three out of four registered voters didn't bother to cast ballots for any of the primary races.
Electing a replacement for Republican Gov. Jan Brewer tops the list of items to watch in Arizona's November general election. Voters also will choose a new secretary of state, attorney general, treasurer and top schools official.

The outcome of the race for governor could turn on who can scare the middle class more, especially over the high cost of college.
The candidates for the Mesa City Council and the mayoral race won’t have to run again in November as one candidate from all four races received more than 50 percent of the vote during Tuesday’s primary election.
In Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness,” the narrator speaks of his instability caused by the fever dream of the jungle this way: “(It) was the playful paw-strokes of the wilderness, the preliminary trifling before the more serious onslaught which came in due course.”

Every time I hear Arizona State Treasurer and gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey boast of his business background I start having flashbacks of wealthy businessman and ex-governor Fife Symington.

More than a century ago Leo Tolstoy wrote about a greedy farmer in his tale, “How Much Land Does a Man Need?” This farmer was discontent with his life because he never seemed to have enough. He moved town to town looking for greener pastures and greater opportunity. On his journeys he heard rumors of a far-away place where a distant tribe possessed more land than anyone could walk over in a year; and it was all there for the taking. He went to investigate and found the rumors to be true. The farmer met with the tribal chief who informed him that he could in fact have all the land he wanted.

After living in Arizona my entire life and having been around and working with Arizona sheriffs like Cochise County sheriffs Jimmy Willson and Larry Dever, Coconino County Sheriff Joe Richards and Maricopa County Sheriff Jerry Hill, and even Joe Arpaio on one of his good days, it’s hard to imagine the new face of Arizona sheriffs is Pinal County “Sheriff Underpants” Paul Babeu.
Former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce has been offered a job with the Maricopa County Treasurer's office overseeing the agency's technical services department, but he may not take the job right away because he's too busy.
Rejecting arguments the state cannot afford it, a judge has ordered Gov. Jan Brewer and the Republican-controlled Legislature to come up with an extra $316 million immediately — and potentially $2.9 billion over five years — to make up for aid to schools they illegally withheld.
After watching and reading about the state treasurer’s debate I thought to myself that with ex-Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman’s line of “bull” he should be selling used cars. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/2014/07/08/treasurer-candidates-get-loud-debate/12393627/.
Got something you'd like to say about whether lawmakers deserve $35,000 a year?
A Republican candidate for Arizona governor has filed an election law complaint against another GOP hopeful.
I can only imagine the machismo in the air at Wednesday night’s gubernatorial candidate summit on immigration and border security hosted by Mr. Muy Macho himself, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.
