The higher class blog Talking Points Memo is always able to do stuff like this, so we’ll go ahead and try it here. Although, I have a feeling that by the time you read this it may be irrelevant.
If you are in one of Arizona’s five districts with incumbent Republican congressmen running, call up your local congressional office and ask if the member plans on supporting Dennis Hastert for speaker. Remember that John Shadegg and J. D. Hayworth are members of the leadership.
Those of you in districts 4, 7 and 8, ask the Republican candidates in your district the same thing.
I’m curious to see what responses you get.
Just so you know, Randy Graf addressed the issue in an article in the Arizona Daily Star this morning, but did not specifically address the problems within the leadership. Talking Points Memo ran a piece alluding to Trent Franks making comments on the matter, but had few details.
Funny thing, no one has interviewed Jim Kolbe, a former page, on this matter.
