An interesting Primary is shaping up in Legislative District 4, giving voters an unusually clear choice. Tony Bouie, the lifelong Democrat who opportunistically registered as a Republican just five days prior to opening his 2008 campaign for a Dist. 6 House seat, is back in campaign mode.
Bouie made headlines with his unmatched pattern of and double-dealing and habitual fabrications during the race that resulted in him being soundly defeated by Reps. Sam Crump and Carl Seel. Although the voters of the district were not deceived, he did win the support of the open borders crowd, who directly benefit from a steady stream of low-wage workers, and happily fed his campaign coffers.
Bouie has reportedly said that he is targeting Rep. Judy Burges — the # 1 PAChyderm rated member of the Arizona House.
Term-limited LD 4 Sen. Jack Harper is running to join Rep. Burges in the House. Adding to the kafuffle Rep. Tom Boone has now filed an exploratory committee against announced candidate Scott Bundgaard, who is running for the senate in the district.
Anyone need a scorecard? The line forms on the right.
