Things have been a little subdued for NW Tucson Republicans. Pima County posted the final count yesterday. The results are unaudited but the numbers are not encouraging. In the state senate race Pesquiera leads Melvin by 455 votes district wide.
Elections were held last week for the Republican LD 26 Committee. Most positions were unopposed but the 2nd Vice Chair and Secretary had 2 names each. For the 2nd Vice Chair a go-along, get-along conservative ran against a troublemaker from the far-right. The get-along conservative quoted from the bible during his speech and won 2 to 1 in the vote. In the race for Secretary the incumbent, despite essentially having moved out of the district, was on the official slate and narrowly defeated a highly qualified local PC who walked her precinct several times during the latest election season. Upshot – do not look for anything new to come from LD 26 Republican Committee. More of the same, whatever that was.
It is our understanding that the LD 30 Republican meeting was a little livelier. Still researching that one.
