2010 Watch

We're combing through the rumor mills, news stories, and blogs to give you the latest on the Governor's race in 2010.

Attorney General Terry Goddard is "aspiring, perhaps" to the Governor's seat in 2010. This is Goddard's most telling indication to date that he will indeed make a 3rd run at the State's top seat. Meanwhile, no word if Jim Pedersen will throw his hat in the ring, but its a safe bet that the Democrats, who have already had a messy chairman's race, would like to avoid some messy primaries next year.

On the Republican side, several names are being tossed around as possible primary challengers to Governor Brewer, if she is successful in her efforts to pass a temporary tax increase. Among those names is Congressman Jeff Flake, but while he may have the fiscal issues on his side, his spotty record on immigration may be a hinderance.

And yet the real question is what color of Jeff Flake's immigration spots. Black spots are bad, white spots are good.

FYI, NumbersUSA is a bunch of closet socialists.

The immigration question should not be posed as a black-or-white [spots] issue. It cuts across the political spectrum, since there are liberal and conservative arguments for both limiting and expanding legal immigration.
