It will be official shortly, but Andrei Cherny, Chair of the Arizona Democratic Party, is stepping down today, in anticipation of a formal announcement of his candidacy for the Ninth Congressional District seat sometime next week.

The former Arizona Assistant Attorney General and policy adviser to the Clinton White House has chaired the party for the last year, offering a more vigorous and outspoken leadership style than his predecessor Don Bivens.

Cherny, 36, will take on former state Senator Kyrsten Sinema and state Senate Minority Leader David Schapira in the primary race for the Democratic nod. 

Congressman Ben Quayle has been considered a possible Republican contender for the CD9 general election, and many observers believe Quayle has been waiting to announce whether he'll run in the newly-formed CD9 or against fellow Republican U.S. Representative Davis Schweikert in CD6.

I hope he wins. I would think that with his election in CD9, we can get back to SANITY in this state...

Hey, one can dream, right?

Why does the headline (on the front page) only reference Sinema as a primary opponent and not the equally-known Schapira?

Especially just as well known (and probably as well liked) in the sandbox (district) that they're all going to be playing in.

And, none of 'em - probably including the announced Republican, Grantham - "suck".

Probably because Schapira sucks!

thoughtful comment there, dude. They are all hardworking Democrats. David is the only one from the district and is the only one who has won a competitive election.
