Did you read Dan Nowicki’s recent blog post about the GOP showdown in LD-11? How’s this for a headline: “Tully ousts McCain-hating GOP chairman in District 11″
Not to continue the inter-party rift but, Nowicki’s words seem to urge on the battle with words like that.
Someone please correct me if I missed it but where was Dan Nowicki when a certain East Valley Legislator and his wife were under very personal attacks by an anti-employer sanctions group in the Primary Election?
On a tangential note, Random Musings has an interesting post about the GOP Senate leadership deciding not to renew lease space to the media in the Senate building. Instead, arrangements are being made for the media to move to the old capitol building where they can lease from Legislative Council. Here is the text of that letter that was sent to Howard Fischer:
Dear Mr. Fischer:
This letter is to inform you that the Arizona state Senate will not be renewing the current lease ending December 31, 2008, for the media space within the Arizona Senate building.
Arrangements are being made for you to continue to lease space from the Arizona Legislative Council on the Capitol Complex in the old Capitol. The Legislative Council will be mailing out a new lease that is similar in all material respects with a few modifications.
The new lease amount is not anticipated to increase over the next lease term. If you choose to enter into a new lease with the Legislative Council, please respond as soon as possible so the space can be made ready for occupancy January 1, 2009.
Thank you for your consideration.
Timothy Bee, Arizona Senate President
My impression on both Nowicki’s and Random Musing’s postings is that the Republican Party certainly cannot count on any love from local media. As I noted in an earlier post, The Republic has gone antagonistically hostile on the GOP and leadership is preparing for the onslaught of attacks and negative press.
