The McCompany we keep
If you had any doubts about District 6 legislative candidate Tony Bouie, take a gander at his list of backers. The host committee on his invitation reads like a Who’s Who of the McCain/Kyl establishment crowd opposing employer sanctions. The fact that this web is woven so tightly around a guy who not all that long ago admitted he was unsure what the term “employer sanctions” actually meant, indicates they think they’ve found the right fellow to do their bidding.
Bouie, a lifelong Democrat, reregistered as a Republican a mere five days prior to filing his intent to run for the state House seat in the heavily GOP district. The questions that raises might be the reason Bouie didn’t bother to show up for the recent Citizens Clean Election debate.
The district is fortunate to have two strong platform Republican candidates for the two seats. Well-regarded incumbent Rep. Sam Crump is running for his second term and longtime GOP activist Carl Seel is seeking the open seat.
