    I agree. The House has stopped Reid and company.

    Was responding to a question of with McSally being elected was McCain on his way out.

    It amazes me she won. Historically that district goes Democratic. I believe the district his largely Hispanic in demographics.

    Yeah, 36% national turnout will do stuff like that.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    If people don't vote, imo they get the representation they deserve. AZ has a good early ballot procedure. There is really no excuse for not voting.

    It's not particularly Hispanic. About half the district is east/central Tucson which tends to be the academic enclaves and urban whites. The rest of the district is far east side Tucson and rural areas of SE Arizona which trend much more Conservative.

    Pima County Democrats generally put up an incredibly strong vote harvesting effort which means that they dominate the early ballot process. Republicans have to win heavily at the polls and that's what happened this time around. Barber won the mail in ballot portion of the race 53/47 but when people actually went to the poll to cast their vote he lost 41/59. My guess is that McSally won because she has a compelling story and Barber was more moderate than what the moonbats down here thought they should support. The Democrats just didn't get the turnout they thought they would.

    Thanks for the analysis, Tucson is near and dear to my heart. I have a lot of relatives there. Though, I doubt many of them vote Republican.
