Well, finally, the Arizona Daily Star (which has the largest newspaper circulation in Tucson) endorsed Attorney General Terry Goddard (D) for Governor today:
and incumbent Ken Bennett (R) for Secretary of State (who takes over should the Governor resign or leave office):
They also endorsed for U.S. Senate incumbent John McCain (R) today:
And for the Congressional seats in Southern Arizona, incumbent Gabrielle Giffords (D) for House CD 8:
and incumbent Congressman Raul Grijalva (D) for CD 7:
Incumbency does seem to matter in these top races.
I wrote a previous blog about Tucson newspaper endorsements for state-wide offices (click here).
Recap of Star’s previous endorsements: Felecia Rotellini (D) for Attorney General, Doug Ducey (R) for Treasurer, Penny Kotterman (D) for Superintendent of Public Instruction, and incumbent Gary Pierce (R) & Brenda Burns (R) for Corporation Commission (2 seats). The only incumbent in these races is Pierce.
Reminder — The Tucson Weekly (10/7/10 issue) endorsed all Democrats except for U.S.Senate (no recommendation).
Vote wisely on or before November 2nd.
