Once a solid red state, Arizona will shift to being a swing state and then a solid blue state. Keep passing laws that target the Hispanic population.
You have no facts no statistics to back up your comments!!


According to the office of Sec. of State, Ken Bennett:
There has been a major change in voters rolls. Since Aug of 2009 there has been a huge rise in the number of newly registered Republican and Independent voters at the same time a DROP in the number of democratic voters within the state. Since January of this year there has been 25,000 newly registered voters added to the rolls. Only 2,300 of them have registered Dem. 10,600 regs. Independent and 12,100 Republican voters.

So the statistics are going against you and prove your that you really do not know what your talking about.

Many recent polls ( Arizona Republic) (Prescott Courier) (Grand Canyon State Poll) (AZ Central) all show that over 50% of Hispanics in Arizona support SB1070. And thus where is this newly energized Hispanic vote??? Arizona also has a very tough "Voter ID" law and thus it would be hard for illegal aliens or legal aliens to vote in our elections!

In the last three Presidential Elections Arizona has voted for three Republicans, 2000-Bush, 2004-Bush and 2008-McCain. The state went for Clinton in 1998 and thus that would make Arizona going from a "swing state" to becoming more of a "Red State"!

Looking at the major elections over the last year states like Mass and New Jersey voted in Conservative Republicans. And both are considered very liberal states!! If Mass and New Jersey and Virginia all threw out dems and elected conservatives....What do you think will happen in a much... much more conservative state like Arizona!!

Nice try....

But you can not cover up the truth!!

I'm thinking the Governor made a mistake to cancel
the governors meeting.

Even if it were not held here to get face to face with the people from the south would show them that the day's
of free rides for illegals are done !

SB1070 will set off a chain reaction in other states since the illegals will move from AZ to other states who will be unable to handle the influx of illegals and be forced to adopt their own version of sb1070 to keep from going bankrupt.
There are not enough legal immigrant voters to make a difference in the elections at this point in time.

Here in CA, we are stuck with Jerry Brown (didn't he do enough damage the first time around, although he did date a native Arizonan) and Meg Whitman (can't decide on amnesty or not....another Arnold who says one thing and does another).

I guess it's the lesser of two evils cliche.

if i were living in california, i would try to get every republican elected that i could. i think whitman will do a better job that arnold did, and a far better job than brown will do.

The death of Mr. Martins wife giving birth to their first child last year, has left him with a tremendous amount of personal pressures and issues right now.

Frankly I admire his decision - he decided to put family ahead of politics - as it should be

And another thing, what exactly is the Governor doing that other Republicans in the state are opposed to(aside from prop 101)? The answer.....nothing!! She has been nearly unilateral with her conservatism.

People are running against not because they disagree with the job she is doing but the fact that she lacks experience and is seen as someone they can win against. She inherited the position, she wasn't voted to the governorship so a lot of her fellow Republicans know they can beat her in an election.
What happened to the govenor she replaced?

A college degree sometimes is only worth the paper it is printed on. Give me common sense any day of the week. Jan Brewer seems to have common sense.

WE had the Govenor's meeting this weekend in Boston. She was there and so were the protesters and some pro 1070 folks. Of course our Govenor is against her 1070.
