Well, it seems that Arizona Democrats and progressives have a lot to be happy and thankful for this Thanksgiving 2018:
First Democratic woman U.S. Senator Krysten Sinema
three other Democrats won statewide offices: Sec. of State Katie Hobbs, Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman, and back on the Corporation Commission — Sandra Kennedy.
Here in Pima County, Democrats took back a House seat in LD 10 with attorney Domingo DeGrazia beating incumbent Republican Todd Clodfelter. And in CD 2, former CD 1 Congresswoman Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick defeated Republican challenger Lea Marquez Peterson to take back that seat as well. 5 of 9 Arizona Congressmembers are now Democrats.
But on a personal note, today being Thanksgiving Day, celebrate with your friends and family and think about what else you have to be grateful for. I usually say I appreciate good health and having a supportive husband– but this year, most of all the birth of our lovely granddaughter Sophie.
Happy Thanksgiving to our BFAZ readers and supporters! And if you feel generous and so inclined, please donate to Blog for Arizona:
