  1. Just my humble opinion but Ms. Kirkpatrick, the Democratic establishment favorite, should find a way to make an appearance.

    FROM Represent Me AZ FB page: ANNOUNCEMENT:
    “Ann Kirkpatrick will not be attending our Candidate Forum.
    We were alerted earlier this week that due to a misunderstanding on our part, her campaign never confirmed attendance. The moment we became aware, we worked very hard to elicit a date from the campaign in May that would work for them. They informed us that Ann was too booked in May to participate, and that her first available dates were the last week in June.
    We asked all the other candidates if they would like to reschedule and they unanimously decided to attend this Forum as scheduled. We wholeheartedly agreed!
    We had committed to all the candidates and our members to host a Spring event and had made it clear to other organizers in the community that we would do so. The candidates, for the most part, are eager to get in front of you and welcome any opportunity to engage with voters. To that end, the candidates agreed to also participate when Ann’s schedule allows in June. We are working on a location for that later event, but for now, we have 5 great candidates that are committed to engaging with you in CD2 for this event!”

    Another candidate, a young attorney Yahya Yuksel has entered this race:
