If We Knew Who They Really Were, We Wouldn’t Elect Them: A New Arizona PAC Aimed At Exposing the Toxic Agendas Behind the Public Posturing Of Our Republican State Legislators. Steve Segner, progressive Sedona businessman, and one of Democratic Perspective’s sponsors, talks to Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson about why he decided to start a new 501 (c)(4) political action committee, AZ Elections 18.
Sometimes all you need to defeat the kind of dysfunctional state legislators we have here in Republican-dominated Arizona is to publicize what they say when they think voters aren’t paying attention. To do that in the age of TV and social media campaigns, though, you need money. That’s what the AZ Elections 18 PAC is designed to do, to raise enough money to expose legislators like Sylvia Allen, Brenda Barton, and Bob Thorpe for the reactionary wreckers that they really are. If the PAC succeeds in that task, Steve is confident that the voters will take care of the rest.
