This is GREAT news for Democrats in Arizona! There were three open seats on the Tucson City Council. The Democrats ran unopposed for one of those seats and mounted strong challengers to the other two (formerly) held by Republicans Fred Ronstadt and Kathleen Dunbar.
VICTORY news from the Tucson Citizen:
Kathleen Dunbar (Rep): 21511
Karin Uhlich (Dem): 34395
Steve Leal (Dem): 40501
Fred Ronstadt (Rep): 19495
Nina Trasoff (Dem): 36662
Proposition 100 (Mayor & Council raises)
Proposition 400 (Home rule)
I attended the Democratic VICTORY party at Hotel Congress and can testify that morale has never been higher for the party. This is a big win for Tucson and will change the dynamic of the council dramatically. Smile Big Dems! We are going to reclaim this country city-by-city.
WE KICKED ASS!
