The AZ GOP's state committee meeting is January 26, and Graham has stacked up the endorsements like cordwood, even from the "crazy" wing of the party, represented by Pearce, Pearce's pet leprechaun Maricopa County Republican Committee Chair Rob Haney, and outgoing gum-smacking gun-nut state Senator Lori Klein, among others.
Pearce's endorsement is a bit of a surprise, as many GOP moderates have feared that if Pearce makes it onto the state committee somehow, he might challenge Graham from the floor come January 26.
Not that Pearce's word is worth more than an empty box of CrackerJacks, but even Pearce would have a tough time endorsing Graham, then turning around and running against him from the floor a couple of weeks later.
