Go, Ruth, go: Rocket scientist giving open-borders Dems a scare

On Sept. 27, I asked you to spread the word and support GOP upstart Ruth McClung in Arizona’s 7th Congressional District. The young, energetic conservative Republican with a physics degree and grass-roots momentum has been working non-stop on the campaign trail to defeat open-borders zealot Raul Grijalva — the entrenched Democrat who spearheaded a boycott of his own constituents over SB1070. As I noted:

The proud progressive Grijalva thinks he’s “safe” in his reliably Democratic district. But when his hometown paper condemns him as “irresponsible and beneath contempt” and protesters deride him as the “best congressman Mexico ever had,” he best not be measuring the re-election drapes. Four terms is enough for the entrenched, out-of-touch Grijalva.

Politico reports today that Dems are nervous. They damned well better be:

Four Democratic sources from different parts of the country said that there is new attention to a race that was long considered in the bag.

And a recent poll, obtained by POLITICO, found that Grijalva and Republican challenger Ruth McClung, a real-life rocket scientist, were in a dead heat, even though Washington prognosticators have declared the deep-blue seat safely Democratic.

As they work to buttress their majority against a coming Republican storm, Democrats can ill afford to spend time or resources defending incumbents in seats where they should have a clear advantage. But the Grijalva seat potentially being in play is a sign of the increasingly expanding Republican playing field for the midterm elections.

One Democratic source familiar with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus said there are “whispers” about the Grijalva-McClung matchup “being a sleeper race.”

Like Ruth says: Boycott Grijalva, not Arizona!

Support her campaign here.
