Ann Kirkpatrick: political opportunist carpetbags to CD 2

Posted by on | July 23, 2017 | No Comments

She’s ba-a-ack, newly reincarnated

Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick has had a bumpy ride in Congressional District 1 —  opting in and out, winning, losing and getting chased down and booed (brief video) by angry constituents. Now, at age 67, she wants to reprise her political adventure after losing a senate effort to unseat John McCain in 2016.

The on-again, off again Kirkpatrick has recently carpet-bagged into Tucson and registered in Congressional District 2. Throwing caution and good sense to the winds, she’s banking on mounting a successful challenge to 3-term Republican incumbent Martha McSallyThere are seven other already declared local Democrats in the race.

The burning question is, will Kirkpatrick stay in Tucson after her 2018 loss or move back to Flagstaff? That nearly 300 mile drive gets tedious. Her husband, Roger Curley, has a legal practice in Flagstaff, making it unlikely he’d join her in setting up a sham residency.
