The Complex Political Landscape in Tucson

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Days after the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords this weekend — and the deaths of six others at the same incident — the question of “why” remains.

The theories have come fast and furious since this weekend, shedding little light.

Some have hinged on drug use. Others have focused on a mentally unbalanced young man. Still others have looked for ties to the tea party. And it may be weeks before any real motive can be found in the assorted notes, emails and accounts that are creating a composite picture of suspect Jared Lee Loughner.

But that is less true of the setting of the shootings, Pima County and the city of Tucson. A mix of big college town with a strong, activist conservative base, Pima is a complicated backdrop.

A complex blend of seeming contradictions, Pima is a county where the long-serving Democratic Sheriff can rail against conservatives who talk about “tearing down the government” — as he did this weekend. It is also the place where a congresswoman can have her office vandalized after voting in favor of the health care reform bill — as happened to Giffords last year.

Friday, November 05, 2010

As the Democrats sort through the wreckage of Tuesday night, the question "what just happened?" is undoubtedly running through their minds. Was it Tea Party enthusiasm that buried them or anger at the economy or a loss of faith in President Obama? Or maybe all those things.
