One local columnist thinks Andrew Thomas can win the Republican nomination for governor. God forbid. I would vote for Elizabeth Warren for governor before I voted for Andrew Thomas (or see the Phoenix New Times coverage). Forget for a moment about his awful policy prescriptions, he is corrupt, and a serial abuser of power.
Last year when we finally folded up shop on Equal Marriage Arizona, a big reason we did so was lack of support from large gay rights groups. A few said they had trust issues with a center-Right coalition to legalize gay marriage. Fine. But several said they did not want the gay marriage issue solved from the center-Right, they wanted Democrat credit for it. Further, they did not want it solved in 2014, because they wanted to run on it to shift Arizona blue in 2014 and 2016.
I was skeptical of the latter, but it may be possible if the Republicans run Andrew Thomas.
