ANOTHER KERRY PROBLEM, NO RED ZONE OFFENSE:

Campaigns leave red state Arizona behind (The Associated Press, 9/27/2004)

The presidential campaign has left Arizona behind. Democratic Sen. John Kerry made four visits and spent nearly $4 million on television commercials in an attempt to make the state competitive. But polls this fall show President Bush with a comfortable lead, and Kerry has tabled plans for advertising in the first week of October.

The Bush campaign responded by pulling down its commercials Friday. Kerry has not ruled out airing Arizona ads in late October, but advisers say privately it would take a significant shift in the race to put the state back in play.

You don't know how happy it makes me that we won't have to watch all those damned election commercials anymore.

All the talk about Arizona being "in play" was nonsense anyway.

Remember Brandon - if you want to keep those commercials away Bush has to hold a solid lead and prevent Kerry from coming back. Without a statewide race (i.e. governor, Senate, House) AZ should receive less attention.
