The far-left local newspaper is having a tough time convincing its diminishing reader base that voting democrat is the route to election victory. Featuring headed-for-retirement reporter Mary Jo Pitzl, the iffy front page headline reads, “Some in GOP are backing dems.”
It’s a pathetic ruse dredging up former state legislator (elected in 1997) and gay rights activist Steve May along with disreputable Mesa Mayor John Giles — who was censured by the Arizona Republican Party over his endorsement of Mark Kelly in the 2022 U.S. Senate election — as crossover voters supporting democrats. Its aim is to persuade Arizona voters that voting for Biden backers makes sense. Pitzl fails miserably due to the fact that her message is fatally flawed. To give heft to her view, she consulted with campaign strategists whose views mirror their paying clients. It’s foolishness personified.
Kelli Ward, chairwoman of the AZ GOP, characterized these Republicrats as RINOs. She correctly identified them as having lost elections, donated to democrats for years and have “sour grapes” about Trump.
There is a reason the newspaper is on its last legs. It has cut itself off at the knees.
I think it’s time for another adjustment to the SeeingRed editorial policies.
After all, you have long denied capitalization status to the democrap-related terms. Why then should you still grant “Republicrats” that privilege?
Poor Mikey….when you get your own blog and publish it every day for years you are welcome to do as you please – until then, stop crying!
Traitor Heather Carter is all in for these dems because she is bitter over her loss. While Jan Brewer refuses to endorse Lake, she endorsed Rusty Bowers and Heather Carter.
No one reads the dying newspaper. It is close to closing down its hard copy editions and home delivery, which are both unaffordable to maintain. The newspaper has a few remaining staff and grammar failures from ASU holding it upright for the time being.
How right you are! The few remaining editors took a hike years ago when they were offered sweetheart buyout deals, due to lost revenue as readers ditched the newspaper. Reading the AZ Repulsive made me want to revert to my days as teacher and give “F’s” to the reporters. We cancelled several years ago along with most of our neighbors.

Thanks for the comma! Every one counts!
