TUCSON – Calling himself a commonsense[-deprived] conservative, Republican U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl kicked off his candidacy for a third term Tuesday by beginning a two-day swing through the state.
Kyl will be facing former state Democratic Chairman Jim Pederson, who entered the race last month.
“These are serious times,” Kyl said. “and in serious times, experience counts.”
Failing that, a track record of thoughtlessly, reflexively, brown-nosingly giving a free pass to the stupid whims of an incompetent president will have to suffice. God forbid we have fresh, independent thought in DC when the party line of greed, graft and repression have worked so well. Dickhead.
