When loyalty isn’t enough

Former Fife Symington chief of staff Chris Herstam called Eileen Klein a "superb choice... due to her extensive state capitol experience and her brains." But Herstam said it's important to keep the shake-up in perspective. "There's always a six to nine month settling process in a new gubernatorial administration," Herstam said, pointing out that Symington had five chiefs of staff in six-and-a-half years.

Rusty’s telephone problem

Rusty Bowers just can't seem to get his numbers to add up right. First, Bowers handed out business cards in CD 1 with a "480" area code - heresy for a candidate in this state's rural region. Now, Bowers - who admitted his "naiveté" in using his Mesa-based home number to run in a non-Maricopa County district - has decided to put his new number on his Web site so anyone can call him at any time.

At home, Brewer violating constitution

During a press conference today with mayors and civil leaders from across the Valley, Gov. Jan Brewer unveiled efforts to bring the new F-35 fighter-bomber to Luke Air Force Base. And the governor touted the fact that she's a resident of Glendale, home of Luke.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio appeared on The Glenn Beck Show last week to talk about DHS's move to end an agreement that allowed him to enforce federal immigration law.

Simcox staying quiet

The big loser if former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth jumped into the race might be Chris Simcox, who announced his intention to run months ago but has failed to pick up the steam his supporters had hoped. Simcox was a one-time supporter of Hayworth, and their constituents in a GOP primary would likely be similar. Nevertheless, Simcox tells Yellow Sheet that he's not concerned. "I think we should all just...

Groomed Governors

John Munger's biggest hurdle in seeking the governor's office may actually have nothing to do with the fact he's from Tucson. The mustache-sporting attorney is up against history in another way, too. See, only two of the 22 people who have served as Arizona governor since statehood have had facial hair like Munger does. And the last case was 32 years ago: Raul Castro, also the only Tucsonan to win the governor's seat in the last three decades...

Not that Terry Goddard

Terry Goddard's PIO Anne Hilby said that she has made several clarifications to previous blog posts that claimed Terry Goddard was representing defendants in the Desert Divas case. Technically, it is true. Goddard did at one time represent one woman arrested, but the Goddard in question is another attorney unrelated to the current Attorney General.

GOP behind Quelland

Several sources from the District 10 Republicans said talks of looking for replacements for Rep. Doug Quelland have died off. The mustachioed lawmaker was absent from the party's Monday night (Sept. 21) meeting, but he did have a LD10 Republican relay the message that the lawmaker "had hit a home run" during his testimony that occurred earlier in the day, said one source.
