Tim Steller (Daily Star/tucson.com) reports on AZ House SpeakerDavid Gowan's dream.
It’s well-known that House Speaker David Gowan, a Sierra Vista Republican, would like to run for Congress.
Yes, Republican Martha McSally already occupies the seat in Congressional District 2, his home district. But if the U.S. Supreme Court invalidates Arizona’s congressional districts, he will have heavy influence on the redrawing of districts and could design one more comfortable for him to run in — say, one with lots of Republicans that runs up the east side of the state.
Since all that’s in the future, and the Congressional District 1 seat will become open in the next election, Gowan now has another plan. He is considering forming an exploratory committee for CD1. Not only can he run for that seat — you don’t have to live in a congressional district to run in it — but it would give him publicity if he gets a chance to run in a district he designs. And that district could include parts of the current CD1.
Think of the perks he could get, like car repairs? Perks in DC are larger than perks in AZ for sure.
OMG! Oh no!
