Arizona’s 2010 election: Counties still counting…

The Associated Press and other national media outlets have declared Congressman Raul Grijalva the winner in Arizona’s Congressional District 7 race. Although Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford has increased her lead over Tea Party challenger Jesse Kelly, the CD8 race is still too close to call.

Three propositions— 110, 112, and 203– also are still too close to call. Prop 110 would make it easier to sell or lease state lands. Prop 112 would shorten the length of time for citizens to file petitions. Prop 203 would make medical marijuana legal in Arizona.

Prop 203 gained some ground, but there are still thousands of ballots to count. According to Arizona Public Media this morning, counting will continue through the weekend. Counties have until November 12 to finalize their election tallies.

For up-to-date results on the propositions, check out this link at the Arizona Daily Star.

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela Powers Hannley

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals--not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election. My platform focuses on economic reforms to grow Arizona's economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, growlocal small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs. I also stand for equal rights, choice, and paycheck fairness for women. I am running as a progressive and running clean.

My day job is managing editor for the American Journal of Medicine, an academic medicine journal with a worldwide circulation. In addition, my husband and I co-direct Arizonans for a New Economy, Arizona's public banking initiative. I am a member of the national board of the Public Banking Institute, and I am co-chair of the Arizona Democratic Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus of the Arizona Democratic Party.

I am a published author, photographer, videographer, clay artist, mother, nana, and wife. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio State University and a masters in public health from the University of Arizona. I grew up in Amherst, Ohio, but I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1981. I am a proud member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson and the Public Relations Society of America.

My Tucson Progressive blog and Facebook page feature large doses of liberal ideas, local, state, and national politics, and random bits of humor. I also blog at Blog for Arizona and the Huffington Post.
