Mesa, AZ – AZ’s toughest fighting Congressional Democratic candidates converge this Friday, June 20th, in Mesa to present their case as to why the future of AZ is blue. Hailed as the “Gale Force Progressives,” the 3 Democrats challenging GOP incumbents in AZ’s 3 east valley Congressional districts, 4, 5, & 6, are joining forces to hold a candidate forum that advances some of the more cutting edge progressive ideas in the political spectrum.
In Congressional District 4, educator/activist/entertainer Mikel Weisser is challenging Tea Party favorite Paul Gosar. In Congressional District 5, blind visionary James Woods is challenging established AZ GOP leader, Matt Salmon. And, in Congressional District 6, high school English teacher, W. John Williamson is taking on equally entrenched Republican, David Schweikert. In each of the races the Democrat challenger is at a stark disadvantage. In each District, registered Republicans outnumber registered Democrats nearly 2 to 1. Yet the three Democratic challengers each somehow found their own inspirations to take on the kind of race more traditional politicians steer clear of.
Check out the forum on Friday, June 20 in Mesa. Help Weisser, Woods, and Williamson dump the Tea Party!
