The Tucson Citizen has endorsed U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva in his reelection bid for Arizona's Congressional District 7. He's running against Ron Drake (Republican) and Joe Cobb (Libertarian).
Grijalva is not just a former MEChA member, he's proud of his membership in that group. MEChA wants to "liberate" "Aztlan" (the supposed homeland of the Aztecs, which just happens to coincide with the U.S. southwest and parts of Mexico). And, of course, he's a Democrat.
Even Los Angeles' "Mayor Reconquista" Antonio Villaraigosa has (somewhat) renounced that group, saying that he doesn't support their goals. Apparently Grijalva does support their goals.
Grijalva's past affiliations might be a good conversation starter if anyone ever runs across Howard Dean or another leader of the Democratic Party somewhere.
