In early interview, Cortes planned to court Hispanic voters (access required)

Critics of Senate President Russell Pearce have labeled Olivia Cortes a "stealth" candidate who is aiming to divide his opposition. This month, media reports quoted a circulator Cortes supposedly hired as admitting that she is running to dilute the vote against Pearce, the state's foremost immigration hawk.

And even though she has denied that the Pearce camp had asked her to run, an early interview with the candidate reveals she planned to court Hispanic voters in the upcoming Mesa recall election.
