2010 predictions: Political races, payday loans, racinos, taxes, immigration on tap

Weirdest of 2009: Prostitutes, dangerous stairwells and locked-in lobbyists
There is no doubt that 2009 will go down in the annals of history as one of the most unusual years in Arizona political history.

As Arizonans warily await the new year, here’s a look back at the top 10 issues that shaped 2009.
