    • This shows how out of touch the Tucson Metro Chamber is with the rest of Tucson. By endorsing Ducey they are standing with corporate people– not with the citizens of Tucson. How can the Chamber back a candidate who is afraid to come to Tucson?

      Ducey preaches tooth fairy economics and destructive corporate tax cuts that have done NOTHING to create jobs in Arizona. Corporate welfare has only lined the pockets of the rich.
