Former Surgeon General and Tucson resident Richard Carmona, who is running for retiring Senator Jon Kyl’s seat, raised an impressive $570,000 in six weeks.
Carmona is challenging Phoenix lawyer Don Bivens for the Democratic Party nomination. The winner of the primary will face either Congressman Jeff Flake or businessman Wil Cardon.
The video above was shot by The Tucson Progressive at the January 2012 Legislative 28 meeting. With honesty and humility, Carmona spoke for less than 10 minutes and took 30 minutes worth of questions from the audience of about 60 party faithfuls.
