Arizona epilogue: luncheons, dinners, rallies, debates, and candidates
by Eric Golub, Washington Times
By February 21st, the entire political world had descended on Arizona. Events were everywhere.
Former Virginia Governor and Senator George Allen spoke to a Jewish group supporting Israel. One hour after him was a separate fundraiser for former Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle, who is now running for her state's open United States Senate seat.
Governor Lingle and I keep missing each other. While I was speaking to the Arizona RJC, she was speaking to the Los Angeles chapter only three blocks from my home.
(Yes, the same hotel where Whitney Houston left us and Barack Obama stays at. It is a popular hotel.)
I arrive in her state on Friday, so perhaps our paths will cross. She is a Jewish Republican who has crossover appeal to many other demographics….
As for me, I arrived at Reata Pass Steakhouse at 6:30pm for dinner and a speech to the Rio Verde Tea Party in Scottsdale. 7:45pm meant a race to Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix for a 9:50pm flight to Los Angeles. A few hours of sleep in my own bed would be followed by an 8:45am flight to Honolulu, Hawaii. Do not be fooled by words like "Oahu" and "Waikiki." This is all (almost) business. March 3rd is one county convention and March 13th is the Hawaii Caucus.
The taste of Arizona is now in the rearview mirror. Yet tastes of Hawaii are on the horizon.
