Rep. Grijalva of AZ for Interior Secretary, seriously
TUCSON -- Politico is reporting that our Congressman Raul M. Grijalva (D-AZ7) is emerging as a top candidate for Interior Secretary. This is good news, and I encourage President-elect Barack Obama to select him.
I've long recommended Raul as good for this important job, and I hope he gets it.
If Mr. Grijalva becomes Interior Secretary, it is very likely another progressive Democrat would take his seat in Congress, perhaps Richard Elias, Chairman of the Pima County Board of Supervisors.
Contact the Obama transition team with support for Grijalva for Interior.
