BISBEE AZ -- Gabrielle Giffords, the leading candidate to replace outgoing incumbent Jim Kolbe in congress, is a good fit for Santa Cruz, Cochise, and Pinal counties, and metro Tucson.
In my experienced view, as an Independent, Gifford's supportable positions on the border, environment, military, and economy make sense for all of Congressional District 8 in southeastern Arizona.
Giffords will be good for Sierra Vista, Tubac, Patagonia, Bisbee, Willcox, Sonoita, Portal, Douglas, Benson, N. Catalina, and metro Tucson.
Giffords clearly stands above a pretty strong dem group of candidates. She is far superior to all the GOP candidates. At 36, Giffords will be a fresh but still experienced voice of reason in DC for all of SE Arizona.
This primary is important. Vote Giffords Sept. 12 or early if you already have your ballot.
