Interesting article in the WSJ.
If the Republican "wave" reaches historic proportions—but perhaps only if it does—it could swamp Democrats such as Rep. Raul Grijalva.
Mr. Grijalva won re-election two years ago with 63% of the vote in this heavily Democratic and Hispanic district, and he has always won decisively.
Mr. Grijalva, 62 years old, is confident enough in the district's leanings that he co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus, a large group of liberal lawmakers. That, of course, makes him an especially inviting target for conservatives.
The Republican candidate, Ruth McClung, 28, is a physicist who works for a defense contractor. She's never held public office before, and she's embraced the tea-party movement.
Mr. Grijalva, by his own admission, has made one big strategic error: supporting a tourism boycott of his home state after it enacted a controversial immigration law. He's since rescinded that position, but it's proved damaging in the economically struggling area.
