Recall Election Update

Just as we predicted, the Russell Pearce recall has taken center stage this month with both sides going back and forth over several issues.  In fact, the Arizona Republic has taken the time to profile both candidates on the front page of the Valley and State section with Jerry Lewis yesterday and Russell Pearce today.

That, of course, didn't stop them from issuing an endorsement before the profiles had been completed.  In what should be a surprise to no one, the Republic has endorsed Jerry Lewis.  Has the Arizona Republic ever endorsed Russell Pearce?

Lewis, however, has a few troubles of his own.  In addition to trying to separate himself from the likes of Randy Parraz, Lewis must also content with allegations that he was taking items intended for homeless kids and giving them away for personal gain.  He also compared Arizona to "Alabama 1964" which you can draw your own conclusions about.

Meanwhile, both camps have taken to the airwaves with an independent group bashing Pearce:
