SWAG for 2014 (State Offices)


Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

ArizonaIt's a thankless job, but I suppose someone has to do it. That's right, it's time once again for the Silly Wild Ass Guess (SWAG) list of who is running for office in 2014. 

If there are additions, subtractions or corrections to the list below, please post it in the comments. I appreciate your help in cleaning up this list.

I will try to update the list once a month.

Let's begin with state offices, because these are the important races which affect your life directly. Voters don't pay enough attention to state office races. It's time to pay attention!

The Blue Meanie is an Arizona citizen who wishes, for professional reasons, to remain anonymous when blogging about politics. Armed with a deep knowledge of the law, politics and public policy, as well as pen filled with all the colors stolen from Pepperland, the Blue Meanie’s mission is to pursue and prosecute the hypocrites, liars, and fools of politics and the media – which, in practical terms, is nearly all of them. Don’t even try to unmask him or he’ll seal you in a music-proof bubble and rendition you to Pepperland for a good face-stomping. Read blog posts by the infamous and prolific AZ Blue Meanie here.
