Espressopundit notes that Harry Mitchell has declined to join Democrat Representative Ann Kirkpatrick in denouncing radical far left AZ Congressman Raul Grijalva’s call for a boycott of Arizona over SB1070. This is really embarrassing for a sitting Arizona Congressman to call for a boycott of our own state. This is more evidence that Mitchell has become out of touch with Arizona voters and lurched to the far left where Grijalva hangs out. Grijalva received a 0 rating from the American Conservative Union last year out of 100. Like Grijalva, Mitchell voted for the socialist healthcare bill, corporate bailouts, and tax increases.
According to this article, the boycott is working and hurting the City of Phoenix. Grijalva and Mitchell must hate Arizona.
70% of Arizonans support SB1070. Mitchell represents a Republican-majority district, so the percentage of voters in his district that support SB1070 is likely even higher. David Schweikert, the leading Republican in the race against Mitchell, has capitalized on Mitchell’s tacit endorsement of anti-Arizonanism with a new website calling for voters to boycott Mitchell. Let’s hope the voters are paying attention and vote out this Grijalva wanna be who represents Nancy Pelosi and her district better than he does Arizona’s District 5.
