Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce backs Graf

Not sure if this was the news TC was referring to earlier, but if not, it is turning out to be a very good couple of days for Randy Graf.

The Phoenix Business Journal has all of the details.

Why are you so happy? Doesn't this mean he's selling out to Jim Click, Don Diamond and the corporate interests who many of the participants on this site were so angry with during the primary?

The Chamber is also supporting Napolitano and Goddard.

Obviously, they had to throw a bone to the Republicans in their group. Plus, it's the smart bet, if the Dems don't take the House an endorsement of Gabby will be worthless.

If the House goes Dem, they'll get back on Gabby's good side in a hurry - just like they're doing with Janet this time.

Those are some pretty interesting endorsements. How many groups support both Napolitano and Graf? Pretty small slice of the Venn diagram on that one.

What this means is that they figure that sending Giffords to congress is more than likely to result in more taxes. especially if Democrats win the House.

This pokes holes in the "Gabby is a taxcutter" meme we have been treated to.

My feelings about endorsements are generally "Meh!" However, this would have been an important pick-up for Gabby, and the fact that Napolitano and Goddard got it and Gabby didn't is definately noteworthy.

It definately would have meant more to Gabby than it will mean to Graf, but he will have to make do. :)
