Republican Johnathan Paton is surging in Arizona.
Liberal Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, who is best known for getting booted out of office in 2010 after walking out of her own town hall when concerned citizens wanted to know how she planned to vote on Obamacare, is back and obviously hasn’t learned a single lesson from her first rodeo with the rural voters of Arizona’s First District.
Take a look at the video below showing her walking out of the townhall – followed by her recent comments that she “won’t second guess the president”.
Of course, this is a bad move on Kirkpatrick’s part… We now know that rural voters are swinging toward Romney by up to 60%! Her crystal ball must not be working.
Now emerging from this race is a clear sign of momentum for Republicans: Iraq War veteran Jonathan Paton, a real military hero who served his country in combat, is pulling ahead of Kirkpatrick in two public polls, even though the district has a 9% Democrat registration advantage!
Conservative rural Democrats are rejecting Kirkpatrick and Obama. In fact, The Arizona Republic now describes Kirkpatrick as having a “complete meltdown”.
The Democrats thought they had this seat in the bag after redistricting made this an open Democrat-leaning seat, but Jonathan Paton is hammering Kirkpatrick on her votes for the failed cronyist stimulus, Obamacare, and for her willingness to be a rubberstamp for President Obama.
