10 years ago, Jon Stewart called Arizona the meth lab of democracy. Since that time, Arizona has shifted from being a reliably red state to a purple one, due to the increase of Hispanic voters and the shifting attitudes of suburban women. As a result, the state now was two Democratic senators, and a Democrat won the presidential election here for the first time in decades,
Gradually, the state is becoming a little more normal, but the article below proves that there are still more than a few wacky Republicans in office here.
Another Republican wack job, Mark Finchem of Oro Valley, recently criticized Lowe's resorts for cancelling a fund raiser for Senator Josh Hawley, who led the charge to overturn the results of the presidential election.
On top of that, there is strong evidence that two Republican congressmen, Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs, helped to plan the January 6 assault on the nation's capitol.
For now, the Republicans still hold a slim margin in the state legislature. However, if present trends continue, that could easily change in the 2022 elections.
Jon Stewart will be pleased.
