On Saturday, March 7, the AZ Dems' State Committee will meet (again! :) ) at the Wyndham Hotel in Phoenix to elect a new chair of the state party.
Registration starts at 8:00 a.m.; registration closes and the meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. (Meeting notice here)
Thus far, the only official candidate is former chair Don Bivens; Tedski at Rum, Romanism, Rebellion has Bivens' letter to state committee members here. At the end of the letter is a list of Democratic activists who support Bivens' candidacy.
However, there is a Draft Bob Lord movement afoot. Lord was the Dem candidate in CD3 who pushed incumbent Republican John Shadegg (R-Big Healthcare) into the fight of his political career. DBL has a website here. It's unclear if Lord himself is going to run, but if he does, it could be interesting. A number of Bivens' supporters lent their names to his efforts during a period when it seemed that Lord wasn't going to run. However, he has been positioning himself to make himself eligible to run (according to a comment from Zelph on this R-Cubed post, Lord is now a PC in LD11) so it could be an interesting meeting.
Or it could be a 20-minute rubberstamp/acclamation special, and all of the folks from the state's hinterlands who trek to downtown Phoenix for the 2nd time in six weeks will have a legitimate gripe about wasting another whole day for less than 1/2 of an hour's B.S.
Guess we'll have to wait and see...
