Thoughts on Mesa has posted a fairly detailed account of what’s really going on behind the scenes with the legislative district 18 race and how certain members of the LDS community are courting leaders in the Hispanic community mainly, The Mesa Association of Hispanic Citizens (MAHC).
Their goal? To elect “kinder and gentler” Mormons to the State Legislature in order to push through anti-employer sanction legislation.
Thoughts on Mesa also continues on the speculation that Kevin Gibbons and Steve Court have been running as a defacto team although neither will admit to it. However, campaign finance reports reflect a different story with some of the same donors making contributions to both candidates.
