Latinos in Arizona are motivated to vote for the upcoming 2012 Senate races and we are tired of the same old faces via (R) Rep. Jeff Flake who is also running for Senate. It is my sincerest intention for Latinos in Arizona be reminded of how JEFF FLAKED denied the DREAM Act to our Latino youth. We will remind Latinos in the state of Arizona how Flake flip flopped on his immigration stance for his political expediency. Latinos are no longer passive voters. We know and understand how immigration continues to be used as a political football. As such, we welcome a new fresh face and Latino leader entering Arizona politics. Carmona is an Independent voter. I am an Independent voter, too, who will push for Arizona Independent voters to vote for the INDEPENDENT thinker because party partisan politics is no longer working for us. Rep. Flake flaked out on us when he decided to become more partisan an extreme when he sided with the Tea party. Tea Party people are not working to compromise and solve difficult issues. We have watched the Tea Party movement put a wrench in the political debate and policy direction as they continue to take our country towards a partisan and divisive nature.
Carmona is a registered Independent who is receiving Democratic support, and he is going to need all the help and support since former State Senator Russell Pearce (far right wing extremist) is now the AZ GOP Chair.
We encourage Independent voters to vote out the old and bring in the new. Carmona has served under the Bush administration and has proven to work with both sides of the political aisle. We need more unity driven politicians who are not beholden to one specific party. We need more politicians who are willing to be bipartisan and get the American job done.
