Turning Arizona Blue

Arizona has a real and viable Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate! I kid you not!
by Charlie Leck

His name is Richard Carmona. He was Surgeon General under President George W. Bush. He left his job after one term, complaining that President Bush was more concerned with politics than medical science. He is now a candidate for the U.S. Senate-- in Arizona!

Carmona can win if he can coalesce women who’ve been offended by matters having to do with reproduction; if he can rally Arizona's strong Hispanic population (Carmona was born in the U.S. of Puerto Rican immigrants); and if he can get strong, unanimous support from those residents who are offended by the state’s strident immigration law.

As the Washington Post says in its story about Carmona, there is also some hope among Democrats that he can leap over tall buildings.

Keep your eye on Richard Carmona. If he gets off to a good start, you may want to send him a few bucks for his campaign.
