New Poll: Flake Tied With Carmona in US Senate Race

Public Policy Polling is out with a new survey of Arizona voters that shows the U.S. Senate
race between Republican Congressman Jeff Flake and Democrat Richard Carmona is a dead heat.

The survey of 993 likely voters, taken Sept. 7-9, show that 44 percent of voters support Flake,
while 43 percent support Carmona.

saw a couple for Flake.

3. Is Benson more like Seirra Vista or Bisbee?

I'm guessing more conservative than not.

This afternoon, on my TV machine, the weather scroll
had dire predictions for Dragoon, among others.
I got soaked this afternoon and there were a few streets and intersections
almost two feet deep.
My daughter thanked me for the ride home from work.
I enjoy the fifteen or twenty minute chat when I am her taxi.

6. Benson is a strange little town.

probably more like SV although the economic base is much more tourist/highway town as opposed to military support. Both heavy on retirees and bedroom communities for Tucson.

There is a working class base and a bit of Hispanic heritage. It isn't quite as agriculturally oriented as Wilcox but it IS partially supported by farms and ranches in the area.

I tend to think of Bisbee as much more artist and tourism oriented.

2. Dr. Carmona has come so far in the polls...

...it really does give me hope. I'm going to give credit to a lot of our Indies and some of our moderate Republicans for this. Flake is an(other) embarrassment that Arizona doesn't need. Dr. Carmona is a true Phoenix that could take some of the tarnish off of AZ.

I told the husband the other nite, it's going to be tough for Flake to go negative on Dr. Carmona. I can't find any dirt on the guy (yes, I vet our candidates...personally. ). Not only that, but Dr. Carmona is a smart, feisty Democrat that won't take any shit from some Flake. I honestly think Flake is afraid of him.

4. The sad part is, Gabby would have been our candidate.

I am in full support of Dr. Carmona. He will be a fantastic senator for Arizona.

5. Wonderful. This reminded me to sit down and

write him a 'nother (modest) check. I hope everyone who can possibly afford to do so will do likewise. He needs the money to gain name recognition.
