Pamela Powers, a progressive voice for Arizona
American Bridge, who recently release a detailed report about Tea Party Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey, has released a new Ducey web ad with the theme “Bad for Arizona.”
Ironically, a @Bad4AZ social media campaign with memes such as the one above was launched about two weeks ago on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook (by yours truly). Either great minds think alike or it’s just that obvious that Ducey is bad for Arizona. Spread the word @Bad4AZ or @Good4AZ or on Tumblr here.
From American Bridge…
Former Cold Stone Creamery CEO Doug Ducey will have his first debate with Fred DuVal tonight, and DuVal better be prepared for anything. As in, anything at all, true or false.
Ducey has run his campaign largely on the back of his business record — but his real business record is sprinkled with problems, so he’s prone to misrepresent it.
Ducey has repeatedly bragged about building his ice cream empire without any help from the government. But that doesn’t have a lick of truth to it. The reality is that Cold Stone Creamery got millions of dollars in Small Business Administration loans and defaulted on around 40% of those loans — a remarkably high rate.
So whatever Doug Ducey says tonight [Sept 10 debate] just remember, the real scoop might come out later.
