I think Frank Antenori just turned into the Howard Dean of the local Republican Party.
Antenori remarked to a still-upbeat crowd that even though Pima County had only 12 precincts counted (at the time), everyone needed to stay put and think positive.
Antenori has now gone from angry politician to aggressively happy politician.
It happened tonight, folks, at Chuy's.
Steve Kozachik is here with his kids, wife and his 83-year-old mom. I'm waiting to talk to his mom right now. I understand, from Steve's wife that she is a long-time reader of the Tucson Weekly.
OK, talked to Steve's mom, Miriam Kozachik. She told me she is a long-time reader of, yes, the Tucson Weekly. And she doesn't seem like the political-pandering type. Listen up art community folks: Steve’s mom has an MFA from NYU, and has shown her work in town.
When I asked her how she helped in the campaign:
"Mostly, I was there to talk and share opinions. He's an interesting person to talk to and has a lot of interesting ideas."
OK, folks, straight from a mother's mouth.
