Russell Pearce seeks office again

March 21, 2012

Last November Russell Pearce became the first Arizona Legislator to be recalled from office. This week Pearce announced he would run for state Senate again in the newly redrawn District 25.

Tyler Montague, who took part in the Jerry Lewis campaign, and  political analyst Chris Herstam talk about Pearce’s choice to run for Senate. They also discuss his primary opponent, Bob Worsley.

Montague says Worsley’s involvement in social conservative movements could be his biggest strength. Herstam says that Pearce is willing to do whatever it takes to win, and his strength comes from the tenacity of his followers.
