I hope you all had a good Holiday season and are geared up for this coming year; 2012. And as you know this is an election year and being from Arizona and having a few readers from this state I want to profile the first U.S. Senate candidate vying for the Democratic nomination. And as of 1/17/12 has raised $570,000 for his campaign in the six weeks since he announced his run for the U.S. Senate.
Dr. Richard Carmona is a physician, law enforcement and public health administrator and was the 17th U.S. Surgeon General from 2002-2006 and currently resides in Tucson, Arizona. He will as of now run against former Arizona Democratic party chairmen Don Bivens in the Democratic primary to replace retiring U.S. Senator Jon Kyl. We will also profile Don Bivens in an upcoming post.
