    Carolyn’s note: first time indeed for 3 siblings in Arizona – LD 2 House Rep. Daniel Hernandez Jr. is running for re-election, his sister Alma for LD 3 House (of 2 open seats), and his other sister Consuelo for Sunnyside Unified School District Governing Board.  Daniel was the Congressional intern who assisted then-CD 8 Congresswoman Gabby Giffords after she was shot on Jan. 8, 2011, at the Tucson Tragedy mass shooting.
