    I’m going to mention that the link “Flake, Carmona Trade Accusations In AZ Senate Debate” above goes to about the worst article I have seen lately. It completely omits in both word and picture the Libertarian candidate for US Senate Marc Victor. I am pleased that the State Press managed a half decent article on the debate.
