Bizarrely declares voting rights her number one issue, though any registered voter is able to vote and no voter repression has been alleged
The widow of party-switching McCain aide and former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods, Marlene Woods is no novice when it comes to switching parties herself. Self-described as the ”Shirley Temple of Cuba,” she came to the USA with her parents as a child, eventually becoming a local television station newsreader.
Grant Woods, who served as John McCain’s congressional chief of staff, frequently broke with the Republican Party to support democrat candidates and leftist causes. He and Marlene celebrated their marriage at the McCain compound in Cornville, Arizona. Later, he endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
Currently announcing as a congressional candidate Marlene Woods declared, “I want to flip that seat.”
“I’m a moderate democrat. That seems right for the district.” Though there are no allegations of voter suppression, Woods states, I’m interested in voting rights…that’s the No. 1 issue…along with what she cagily refers to as “common sense gun laws and reproductive rights.”
In an interview, Woods said she had been approached to run by democrats after the November elections. She said she switched her party registration from “lifelong Republican” to democrat when Donald Trump became president, saying, she “no longer recognizes the Republican Party.” Most recently, Woods chaired democrat Adrian Fontes’ campaign for secretary of state.
“My values are the values of this district. My positions haven’t changed. I’ve always been pro-choice,” she boasted. “Pro-choice” is liberalese for “pro-abortion.”
The U.S. House of Representatives is comprised of 435 voting members. Congressman David Schweikert, a senior member of the influential Ways and Means Committee, represents the district. Read his impressive bio.
He has served his district well and deserves to be retained.
