It looks like Randy Graf has garnered needed support from the GOP with Hastert and Rove coming to town to rally the troops. Of course, they could be coming to bolster Kyl's campaign, but the fact they will be in Tucson suggests the target is Graf. A recent GOP fundraiser where Click announced his "150%" support for Graf is another indicator that the party is coming together and making an effort to repair the damage inflicted during the primary.
With Grijalva taking a substantial role in her campaign, Gabrielle Giffords has all the party support she needs. It would seem she only needs to concentrate on getting her message out. What's puzzling, however, is why she is finding a variety of pretexts to excuse herself from public discourse. Several sources have stated that Giffords will only appear if there are at least 200 participants present. Other sources place the required number at 300. Furthermore, regardless of the number of scheduled community forums and debates, Giffords will commit to appearing at only six, and insiders suggest there may be a few that she skips.
We're not sure why she seems hesitant to appear in public, but some have speculated that like the late night vote ad for which Weiss took her to task she may feel uncomfortable reconciling her recent tough border talk with her voting record and connections to Las Adelitas, Migra Matters and other radical open borders groups.
We are also not sure why Gijalva, who is in the middle of his own re-election campaign, would want to take on Gabby's campaign as well. Even if he is confident that he will be remaining in Washington, helping Gabby would seem to be a distraction for him stretching his abilities in both campaigns.
