  1. About 15 people at Cartel Coffee to listen to these 2 young, political newcomers talk about themselves & the issues facing their campaigns. Abboud is from Arkansas, married to an Iraqi husband, and has worked in civil rights/immigration law areas. She thinks Arizona is a purple state and her key issues are healthcare, education, separation of church & state, net-neutrality. Kovacs spoke of alternative energy, fundraising, dialogues with voters in his grassroots campaign, why did Dr. Matt Heinz lose by almost 44,000 votes to Rep. Martha McSally, Iraq war & government contractors. Abboud also addressed these issues somewhat (and corporations funding campaigns) and said that Iraqi pride has been lost, country is more divided than before, has had niece & nephew serve in that war. Joe Ferguson, reporter at AZ Daily Star also present. Venue not the best for this meet & greet, with noisy conversations ongoing in the background, and coffee being ground, made it difficult to hear both candidates, and the conversations.
