Putting the Republican-bashing on hold for a little while (don't fret, there's more to come - it seems that they're always up to some mischief, doesn't it? LOL)...

Place - 123 E. Baseline Rd. in Tempe (the same complex that the 2006 HQ was in, but in a different office. Follow the balloons and signs. :) )

Join Harry, Marianne, and all of their friends for hot dogs, hamburgers, and refreshments (OK, and probably an invitation to volunteer for the campaign, too :) ).

Non-campaign note - According to PolitickerAZ, Congressman Mitchell has welcomed Joni McGlothlin to his Congressional staff as Communications Director. Join me in welcoming Ms. McGlothlin to AZ and CD5.
