“People should pay attention to him in this atmosphere,” Dean said. “If someone is going to run and limit contributions to $20 now and [keep it that low] they can catch on even with Tea Party crowd, which is big in Arizona.”
I am a great admirer of Howard Dean, having been a volunteer on his campaign here in 2003/2004, and an advocate of his “50 State Strategy, when hew was DNC chair. He doesn’t get enough credit for the Democratic Party wins in 2006 and 2008 in unlikely places. But, if he actually believes the “Tea Party crowd,” would support a Democrat, the good doctor may need a check-up from the neck up himself.

Putting Arizona First – I know firsthand the need for our U.S. Senators to be advocates for the working families, seniors, veterans, and young people of our State as well as a friend to our cities and towns.


Hmm, he certainly seems to have a good idea of what serving as a Senator from Arizona should entail!

As for the “Veterans” plank of his platform, Glassman’s “firsthand” experience as “a U.S. Air Force JAG Reserve” don’t stack up too well against Senator McCain’s experience in that area ... probably not one to overemphasize.

Good luck to him, and here’s hoping he starts uncapitalizing “state” and “century”.
