Temporary County Attorney Rick Romley continues to line up support in his quest for the Republican nomination for that office. But someone needs to tell him that he should probably be lining up Republican support.
It’s a subscription only website, but the Arizona Guardian’s Dennis Welch is doing a great job exposing Romley and how the Dems won’t bother putting someone up because they already have their guy in Romley.
Here’s a gem from Welch: “Democrats say they’re confident interim County Attorney Richard Romley will defeat his more conservative opponents in the primary and represent their interests.”
Of course they’re confident, because Romley has long represented their interests. He opposes SB 1070 and crackdowns on illegal immigration in general, regularly endorses liberal Democrats, and served as a top staffer to Democrat Attorney General Terry Goddard.
Side note: the article notes how Romley has picked up the endorsement of Terry Goddard’s second in command, Tim Nelson, who says Romley will do a “good job.” He will do a good job by Nelson’s standards. Nelson was a failed Democrat candidate for County Attorney (who, surprise surprise, Romley endorsed) and the lawyer for Janet Napolitano during her administration, which did so much damage to Arizona.
It’s not surprising to see Nelson line up with Romley. But here’s a question: are there any actual REPUBLICANS of any note supporting Romley? We haven’t heard of one. If you’re out there, we’d like to hear from you. We won’t hold our breath.
