Phx’ farcical mayoral election today: Leftists rule

Today is Election Day in the City of Phoenix. It’s not just any election, mind you. It’s a Special Election — for mayor. The seat was left open when the former deeply committed mayor, Greg Stanton boogied to run for congress in Congressional District 9, following Kyrsten Sinema’s departure. On his way out the door, Stanton doled out $2.4 Mil of our tax dollars to a La Raza ally. When initially elected mayor, he received a congratulatory call from then-President Barack Obama and his Secretary of Homeland INsecurity, Janet Napolitano — clearly exposing the farce of “non-partisan” city elections.

For her part, Sinema magically ran for, and was elected to, the U.S. Senate — without ever once mentioning her party affiliation.

If you’re wondering about the election today, there’s not much to bother yourself with. Both candidates are Democrats. The only choice is the “conservative” liberal or the straight-up, liberal liberal. It’s all a disgraceful charade. Council District 5 and 8 seats are also on the ballot since those are the seats Valenzuela and Gallego abandoned.

It does sound confusing, but just think of it as Democrat politics as usual. In this case Daniel Valenzuela has political operative friends who have been financing mailers that describe the firefighter unionist and committed liberal as a “conservative,” when nothing could be further from the truth. Moses Sanchez, who ran and lost claiming GOP credentials, has endorsed Valenzuela. He joins other AZ Republicrats Woods and Romley (appropriately at the bottom of the endorsement list) who have made careers of endorsing liberals. Woods recently made good on his longtime promise and re-registered as a Dem, losing his swag. Also among Valenzuela’s endorsers are McCain insiders Robert Delgado and Doug Yonko, both honchos in Cindy Hensley McCain’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship empire.

Kate Gallego, who was the object of incendiary race-baiting when she ran for the city council seat she has abandoned for the mayor’s race, has the better credentials. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard University and earned an MBA from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania — though her endorsements are as radically leftist as Valenzuela’s. Her ex-husband, U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, who she divorced while pregnant with their only child, has gallantly endorsed her candidacy for mayor.

Arizona voters need a scorecard to keep up with the ambitious, reconfigured Democrats and their stranglehold on the city of Phoenix and encroachment on D.C. in the Senate and House.

If you’re up for this, election results can be viewed here. We suggest you watch the on an empty stomach. Polls close at 7 PM.

    I passed on voting my early ballot. It was taken directly from the mailbox to the garbage bin, never making inside my house. It would be the same as voting in a dictatorship, with no choice.

  2. Maggie says:

    The base Phoenix Mayor’s salary (not including benefits and perks) is $87,998 annually. As a Council member Kate Gallego earned $61,599.
    Of course Ruben Gallego endorsed her. He’s probably hoping with her increased income he can cut back on his child support payments.

    Maybe this purdy woman will run for office:

    If you want to see what’s going on in Arizona, might want to check twitter account for Customs and Border Patrol, Arizona
    @CBPArizona. Scroll down for the video posted last weekend.
    Hundreds crossed. Of those, almost 200 SICK with various diseases.

    And yet, the Dems run PHX. How does this make any sense?
    How much longer will we be a “red State”?

    • Saguaro Sam says:

      The drugs in her possession was Fentanyl.
      She had enough to kill thousands of people.

      CHINA, CHINA, CHINA, through our open borders.

      Fentanyl is so dangerous that police officers and police K-9s may require hospitalization from coming into the slightest
      contact with it.

      A very real threat, as they are targeting our water supply.

  4. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Both Gallego and Valenzuela support open borders and giveaways to illegal invaders. I couldn’t vote since there was no choice. Since we’re going to be screwed over regardless of who is elected, why support either of those who stand against us?

    We didn’t get to this point overnight. It’s up to conservatives to begin recruitment and vetting of potential candidates NOW for upcoming elections, for City of Phoenix and statewide offices. This needs to be conducted in a wise manner. I suggest District Chairmen within the City of Phoenix get together and come up with a recruitment action plan. This needs to be an ongoing process. Being caught in this ridiculous position in the fifth largest city in the U.S., is no longer an option.

    Amazing to see McCain operatives still working to “fix” election outcomes. Though dead and buried, McCain’s cold fingers are still meddling. Bettina Nava also worked for McCain.

  6. Clementine says:

    Gallego is endorsed by numerous unions and Planned Parenthood. Question? When countless babies are aborted, who will the unions employ? People with professional degrees are not the rank and file unionists.

  7. Trevor says:

    Did Rick Romley back Janet Napolitano like Woods did?

    0ff the point – I heard our Senator McSally’s difficult and personal incident concerning her being sexually assaulted and raped while in the military. Being a former military person I have also seen where senior members took advantage of young females in the military.

    My question for our senator is why did she not identify the individual who raped her? Why would we want an individual who did this to remain in the service and, for all we know, continued this reprehensible behavior? Senator, identify this person so we can remove this person from our ranks.
