Lake Can’t Fit All Her (New) Complaints Into Her Election Contest Reply Brief

Kari Lake’s attorneys have so much to say about the dismissal of her Election Contest, they are asking for an exception to the word count in their newly-filed Reply Brief.

How Unstable People Get to Rule the World

I'll admit it. I had a blast watching the political circus that is Congressman George Santos (R-NY) and his never-ending stream of lies. I gleefully jumped on the bandwagon of folks creating viral memes and laughing like hyenas. But it quickly played out and became so last week to those of us who possess even a minimal sense of morality. Played out, you say? Why, it’s almost as if George lacks the terrifying presence of an unchecked Donald Trump

Why I Will Cast My Vote for Yolanda Bejarano for ADP Chair

In my opinion, Yolanda Bejarano is the better choice to lead ADP. Please allow me to lay out my reasoning for your scrutiny. Perhaps you will agree with me. Endorsements When I first heard that there would be a contested election for ADP Chair, my first instinct (perhaps like many of you..) was to ask, "Who does the Governor want?" It has traditionally been one of the prerogatives of the Governorship to choose the Party Chair whom they want

The Leaders of the Maricopa Democratic Party Reflect on 2022 and Discuss the Way Forward to 2024

2022 was mostly a good news story for the Maricopa County Democratic Party. Most of the statewide candidates including Katie Hobbs, Adrian Fontes, Kris Mayes, Kathy Hoffman, and Mark Kelly won the fourth-largest county in the country. Local Legislative District (LD) and philosophically aligned school board candidates performed according to electoral expectations. Perhaps the only depressing result, stemming from a ballot drop off in voter participation from the November elections was Julie Gunnigle losing in a special election for

Arizona’s Housing Crisis Should Be a Major Focus of the Legislative Democrats this Year

In terms of immediate financial and quality of life impacts on average AZ people and families, the most consequential policies emerging from the new political strength of Democrats in Arizona are likely to be efforts to address our housing crisis.
