Re: “In the Pipeline

Hey Sonoran17, In the 3rd quarter, Brian Miller put $12,500 in to his own campaign. Frankly the fact that both Kelly and Miller put a fairly large sum of their own money in to their campaigns is a positive.

Nintzel, a known liberal and Giffords supporter. He writes a hit piece on Kelly, so what else is new?

Primaries SHOULD be about the issues and the issue is Giffords was against the stimulus and then for it after a bunch of pork was added to it - then she voted YES. Now there is a pulled-pork sandwich!

Kelly opposes the stimulus spending as should any republican.

We'll have to wait and see Paton's donations since he decided to work around the resign to run law and file AFTER the FEC filing reporting period.

Re: “In the Pipeline

With all the federal taxpayer dollars being thrown around by Obama and Giffords, I don't think ANY CONSTRUCTION business would be immune to bidding on a contract that includes those dollars.

Giffords herself is a recipient of stimulus funds. Those solar panels she had put on her roof included federal and local tax credits with her paying only about 1/4 of the cost!

Facts on solar installation at Congresswoman Giffords’ Tucson home:
System specifics:

9 panels with 25-year warranty
Covers about 150 square feet
Produces about 2 kilowatts of electricity


Total project cost, including materials and installation: $12,544
Rebate from Tucson Electric Power Co.: $6,210
Cash outlay from Congresswoman Giffords: $6,334
Rebate on 2010 income taxes from state: $1,000
Rebate on 2010 income taxes from federal government: $1,900
Final net cost to Congresswoman Giffords: $3,434
