Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
[Editor: Re-posted from Blog for Arizona, voted Best Political Blog in Arizona by the Washington Post (by the Post? Not buying that, but, oh well....), both are liberal media]
The AZ GOP sent out a strange message that looks like a cross between their Chairman Robert Graham spiking the football post election and some sage advice for the AZ Democrats.

Some of those things are simply observations that I or any other engaged Democrat would agree with while others are Robert Graham desperately flailing to take credit for Republican successes in which he had little to no part, in advance of next month’s reorganization where he faces opposition for State Chair.
Graham’s bragging about fundraising by the AZ GOP is especially laughable since the party raised a pittance for the 2014 election in comparison to the actual amount of money that flowed in from outside groups (over $27 million, most of which went to help Republicans). GOP statewide candidates needed no help from the state party and most of the legislative ones were safely positioned for election or reelection. Which leads me to the major failure that Robert Graham really does not want you, and by “you” I mean “members of the Arizona Republican State Committee” to pay attention to.

Graham had one job in 2014, and he sucked at it. I hope he never gets reelected as Chair next month.
Go to Blog for Arizona to read what Graham said after the election and compare it with what is said in the Blog for Arizona and championed on AFA for its factual analysis. AFA will be presenting the fundraising reports showing what was actually done by AZGOP for the past two years. Hold your breath for this is revelation!
