States of the Union: Arizona

Thursday, April 03, 2008

We look at Arizona -- John McCain's homestate -- and find out how illegal immigration shapes the political debate in this border state. Also: why public spending has become a major state-wide issue. Robert Robb is an editorial columnist for The Arizona Republic.

States of the Union fact of the week: Arizona does not observe Daylight Saving Time, except in the Navajo Nation.

Robert Robb works for The Arizona Republic, not the Republican as Lenny stated in his introduction. Thanks for having this guest on. Arizona politics are always interesting!
