Special Election Day

Today is Special Election Day in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District to finally fill the House seat vacated by Gabrielle Giffords’ well-known incapacitation.   After nearly a full congressional session, the people of AZ-8 will soon have their constitutional rights restored.

The two major candidates are Democrat Rob Barber, her former district director and victim of the Tucson shooting himself, and Republican Jesse Kelly, young former Marine and Iraq War veteran with a family business in the construction industry.  It will be very interesting indeed to see who prevails later this evening.
