House Seat Of Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) Now In Play


Republican Ruth McClung best be paying attention, and getting her message out to the people of Arizona District 7

Add Rep. Raul Grijalva to the growing list of Democratic worries this election season.

Party operatives say there’s increasing concern that the Arizona Democrat’s reelection bid could turn into a “sleeper” race for Republicans after Grijalva – responding to enactment of a tough new immigration law – called for an economic boycott of his own state amid a housing crisis and record unemployment.

Who would have thought doing something like that could cause political problems?

And a recent poll, obtained by POLITICO, found that Grijalva and Republican challenger Ruth McClung, a real-life rocket scientist, were in a dead heat, even though Washington prognosticators have declared the deep-blue seat safely Democratic.

A recent poll by Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies found that among likely voters Grijalva is leading McClung 40 percent to 38 percent, well within the margin of error of 3.7 percentage points. Thirteen percent of those surveyed were undecided, while 9 percent backed other candidates.

Politico says that people might want to take the poll with a huge grain of salt because the company that did the poll serves mostly Republican clients, then they go on to cite the fact of a huge oversampling of Democrats. 51% of the respondents say they are registered Democrat (29% R, 20% I), 33% strong Dem, 18% not so strong Dem. Furthermore, 35% consider themselves Conservative, 40% Moderate, and only 20% Liberal. There are some serious opportunities for Ruth to bust through and win this race.

So, all you folks out in AZ-7, make sure you vote Ruth McClung, She will serve you, rather than illegals coming across the border

I should also point out that Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ 1) is also having troubles, trailing by 7 points to Republican Paul Gosar. She’s now pretending to be a moderate, after voting for pretty much everything Obama and Pelosi wanted.
