My 2nd Year Anniversary at Blog for Arizona

71

Well, another political year has passed and a big one is upon us, with the Presidential Election of 2016. To date, 2 Democrats Clinton & Sanders are seeking this seat and still 7  Republicans – Bush, Carson, Cruz, Gilmore, Kasich, Rubio, Trump. Interestingly enough, Cruz and Rubio are half Hispanic.

Stay tuned for lots of action there with all the primaries coming up as we head into the summer national conventions to select the Democrat and Republican who want to be U.S. President. And this year there may even be an Independent Candidate.

Don’t forget to vote in the Arizona Presidential Preference Election on March 22, 2016, so you can have your say in national politics.

I’ve been online here now for 2 years, having spent over four and half years blogging at the Tucsoncitizen.com (shut down suddenly by Gannett Publishing on Jan. 31, 2014).
Please check out our Blog for Arizona  Calendar for lots of progressive events, which has become primarily my responsibility.  I’ll also be on the local campaign trail as the Pima County offices are up for election, as are State House and  Senate seats.

  1. And then there were 6, as Jim Gilmore (former Va. governor) just dropped out of the race. Stay tuned for more Republicans to drop out. I predict Ben Carson will be next.
