Unfortunately, only a handful of Arizona politicians were at the forefront in the pushback against extremists on the right. Congressman Raul Grijalva (CD3), State Senator Kyrsten Sinema (currently running for Congress in CD9), and Dr. Richard Carmona (currently running for US Senate against Teapublican Congressman Jeff Flake) spoke up earlier and more consistently than any other Arizona politicians.
NOW has endorsed Grijalva and Sinema in their primary races for Congress.
Who was endorsed by NOW is as interesting as who was not endorsed because it clearly reflects who didn't stand up for women (or who waited months until the outcry was so thunderous that they were forced to speak up.) For example, Blue Dog Congressional Dems Ron Barber (CD2), Matt Heinz (CD2), Amanda Aguirre (CD3), J. Manuel Arreguin (CD3), Andrei Cherny (CD9), and Ann Kirkpatrick (CD1) are not on the NOW endorsement list, but neither are progressive-backed candidates like Dave Shapira (CD9) or Wenona Benally Baldenegro (CD1).
