Rep. Raul Grijalva Endorses Wenona Benally Baldenegro

Written by  D.A. Morales | Tucson Citizen

Congressman Raul Grijalva endorses Wenona Benally Baldenegro for U.S. House in the Arizona First District. Congratulations, Wenona!

Arizona’s CD-1 is important to Tucson because it and Grijalva’s CD-7 form the northern and western boundaries of Giffords’ CD-8, and thus for CD-8 to change requires a give and take with either of these two districts.

CD-1 stretches from the Pinal-Pima county line (except for Saddlebrooke) all the way north to Flagstaff and the Four Corners, making it the largest congressional district that is not an entire state.

There is a possibility that Saddlebrooke and parts of Northern Pima County may move into CD-1 depending on redistricting.

Congressman Raul Grijalva will be help make history by holding a fundraiser for Wenona Benally Baldenegro, who if elected will become the first American Indian woman elected to Congress.

After graduating with honors from Arizona State University and getting a law degree from Harvard, Wenona is certainly well qualified to be a lawmaker representing the Arizona district that she grew up in.

From Kayenta to Congress, there is hope for Arizona in 2012!

Join "Countdown to Coverage" Share TPP with your Daily Newspaper

CWA devised a simple plan for which they were uniquely suited: drag TPP out of the shadows and into the light - one city at a time - using a medium they understand intimately: Daily Newspapers!

Two CWA members - Dave Felice in Denver, CO and Madelyn Elder in Portland, OR have started the ball rolling. We just need to keep up the momentum leading up to a big day of petition deliveries in January.

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative on the TPP

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently opposed to Fast Track, they may not completely understand all the implications. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
